Get ready, Get set

Tour de Fleece
July 4th through July 26th, 2009

Now is the perfect time to finish the spinning project
currently on your wheel,
free up those bobbins
and contemplate your

'09 Tour de Fleece challenge.

Last year we both worked with luxury fibers, thinking that it would take quite some time to spin them and spin them well. Nope. Blasted right through and did a darn fine job of it, too, if I do say so myself. And I do.

Peggy's '08 Tour results:
left to right
Cashmere, Pygora, Yak Merino
Rebecca's '08 Tour results:
50/50 Yak Merino from Sarah Anderson on top
Silk Mohair from Velda Mack below
The whole pile:
So. Nice. Wish you could feel them.
These are some very soft, lofty yarns and we love them all.

We haven't knit with any of them yet,
although some swatching was done to test the results.

As I said: nice.

So get on that, ok? July 4th is just two weeks away!

Just lovely!

I have two spinning projects set for the Tour. I think I should pick one more, just in case. As I type this I think I will give the camel blend slot #3.
