...because spinning keeps me stable. Or something. Anyway, I spun nearly every day of the Tour de Fleece this year. I missed one day--it was a very busy travel day, in my defense--but other than that, I did spin every day that wasn't a rest day. The total output for the whole shebang honestly doesn't look that impressive.
But then again, the goal wasn't production; it was just spinning. I obviously have a lot of plying to do. I actually finished spinning and plied my July self-imposed spinning club fiber by the skin of my teeth, and I'm very happy with how it turned out.
I'm thinking I might do a striped project with this skein and this skein from late last year, what do you think?
The real fun of the Tour de Fleece this year was that I got to spin in some really beautiful places in the month of July...
For August, I actually decided to take a break from the club and spin something else, because I'm ahead of schedule. That sounds like I'm an overachiever, but really, I'm a person who sets the bar pretty low. A big part of that was keeping my monthly goals very reasonable--of the twelve projects I'd lined up, two were one ounce projects and five were two ounce projects. By chance, the four remaining projects are all four ounces...Anyway, here's some beautiful Rambouillet from CJ Designs that I just started this month. It's so puffy, while still being easy to draft, I just love it.
I love it so much I finished the first ounce in about two days.
