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?

BFL Chain Plied - 30th Anniversary Fiber-

BFL Chain Plied - 30th Anniversary Fiber-

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.

TDF Day 2

On day 2  of the Tour de Fleece I finished up my BFL single. I let it set over night and I will ply it today. So while I was letting it set I decided to start something funky & fractal. 

What is Fractal? It's a way of splitting your fiber so that one ply has a very long colour repeat and the other has short colour repeats of the same colourway. When it's finished and you knit with it, it should give you a nice gradual colour shift.

I also decided to add in some teal inclusions for a little extra funkiness :)


TDF 2015 Day 1

The 1st day of the Tour de Fleece was a success. I spun for 3 hours and I only have 1/2 and oz of this lovely BFL left to spin. This is the roving I received from my spinning guild for their 30th anniversary in the Finger Lakes colorway. If your ever in the area check out the Genesee Valley Handspinners Guild it's a great group that likes to have fun, here's a link to the website. GVHG

In honor of Independence Day I did my spinning with Red,White & Blue toes.
