Tour de Fleece, 2009

So my husband thinks i’m completely nuts…totally off my rocker.  I sorta am…hee hee.  This is my first year doing Ravelry’s Tour de Fleece (a yarn spinning competition that runs at the same time at Tour de France).   I don’t watch Tour de France…have zero desire to. but I love spinning wool…any excuse to spin more often…

Here is Day 1 – July 4th efforts –

I started with some beautiful Merino/Seacell – “sea sprite” color from 1,000 Petals

The next wonderful wooley goodness is from Squoosh FiberArts – probably my favorite ever for rovings…I can’t get enough fiber from her…her colorways are just amazing…

I’ve actually been working today…gasp…shocking I know.  Designing wedding albums for my wonderful real clients at www.heathermwhiting.com, so I haven’t been able to continue spinning this wonderfully yummy roving.  I will do more tonight.

Well, back to work!!! See you soon.
