Tour de Fleece 2015

21 days in July and 5489 yds (spinzilla standards) and it is finished.  I had a really great time, the teams I was on (PLY & Kromski Owners) were great. I loved seeing what everyone was working on, they were all so supportive and encouraging and I learned a few new things. For me the take away will be to spend some time spinning everyday even if it is 20 min. and to post on my blog more often.

So what next? Spinzilla? At 5489 yds in 3 weeks, I think not!

Right now my goal will be getting things ready for my store to open:) What are your working on?

This skein was spun during TDF but didn't make it in the group picture because I sent it on to the Finger Lakes Fiber Fest for our Guild display.

Dye Fest

During the Tour de Fleece we have 2 days of rest, the same as on the Tour de France. On my rest days I decided to spend the time dyeing.

My family has been really awesome as i have taken over much of the house with dye stuffs :)

I like using Greener Shades dyes. They are a non-toxic acid dye that doesn't use any heavy metals. Better for the environment and better for my family, since I do my dyeing in the kitchen.

I'm still hoping to have my shop open this Fall, even though sickness put me behind a couple of months. I'll have hand dyed fibers and hand spun yarns, and possibly some other goodies. Keep an eye out for sneak peeks. I think I see some colourways developing!
