yep, I participated. You probably don’t know this because I was so crazy busy I never blogged about it. /sigh
So first, Tour de Fleece – I started out with my usual plan, SPIN ALL THE SPUNKY CLUB THINGS!
I pulled out all the club fiber from the Bin of
R’s iPhone is included for scale. This, btw is what 6 pounds of fiber looks like.
Once I took a look at the pile and then looked at my sewing schedule, I realized that there was no way, so I lowered my expectations and decided to just get 4oz spun and plied over the course of the TdF. I chose my fiber:
..and forgot to take a photo of it while it was still fluff. Oops! I do have an early bobbin photo:
Superwash BFL in the colorway “ooh la la tro-pi-cal”
I ripped strips from the prepared roving so there were shorter repeats of the color sequence, here is the bobbin with all the singles done:
I chain-plied it to preserve the color sequence:
and it came out gorgeous, IMHO:
I cast on socks during the opening ceremony:
and managed to finish them almost the minute we arrived in Indiana for Pyro convention! Here is a collage of the knitting:
I LOVE these socks! They’re so squishy! I’m so very happy that I managed to actually finish something during TDF AND the Olympics (and technically, Summer of Socks although I didn’t officially participate) this year!
