What the heck is Tour De Fleece?  Tour De Fleece is a spinning event over on Ravelry where you spin fiber in conjunction with the Tour De France. You rest win on rest days.  You challenge yourself on challenge days.  Wear Yellow for Victory!!!!!!  How fun is that?  This year my goals are the same as last year:

Spin at least 30 mins a day

Spin on my Turkish drop spindle

Learn Long Draw

I started the tour with some Threewatersfarm  farm fiber, SweetPea its reminds me of berries.  I managed to finish one Bobbin once I finally was able to sit down at the wheel.  I did have a little help from Lord of the rings:).

I think this fiber will be really pretty once its finally plied as a 3 ply.

Looks like this may be a nice DK weight so that’s exciting!  Feels good to have fiber my hands again.

If you are a spinner I encourage you to participate its a ton of fun and you really build your skills.  See you later…..Ride On!

Toodles!
