The Tour de Fleece started Saturday and like any good athlete, I did some training in preparation. Spinning training sure is more fun than other types of training. Just saying.
This is Nightshade, the Spunky Eclectic Fiber Club selection for the month of May.
And this is Tulips, the Spunky Eclectic Fiber Club selection for the month of June.
Finally, remember the vacation spinning I did? Well, I finished spinning the roving from Spinner’s Hill and plyed it up and got about 600+ yards. That’s enough for a Shetland Triangle, which is going to be my Spun Stitches knitting.
I started off Saturday morning with empty bobbins and a plan to spin every day until July 29th. I’m hoping to make a significant dent in my fiber stash. Anyone want to play a game and guess how many ounces I will spin by the time the Tour de Fleece is over? There will be a fibery prize for the one who comes closest without going over.
Here is some information to aid you in your guessing:
~I’m not a particularly fast spinner. It usually takes me 2-3 sessions to spin up 4 oz.
~Anything I spin will count towards the total. In other words, it doesn’t have to be plyed and finished yarn.
~I’m working the next two weeks and my weekends will be moderately busy
That’s about all I can think of to give you for hints. To enter the contest just leave a comment on this post anytime until July 29th. Hopefully you’ll have fun playing while I have fun spinning.
