Well, the Tour de Fleece is almost over. I’ll be sad to see it go, but it’s probably better if I start focusing on knitting more than spinning for a while anyway!
Today is the challenge day for the Tour, so my goal for myself is to FINALLY finish this spindle-spun orange yarn that I started months ago. If I finish the singles today I’ll be happy; if I finish plying the whole thing I’ll be THRILLED. I plan to ply on the wheel, regardless of what happens. It may be a long time before I put 4oz of anything on a spindle again!
After the Tour de Fleece, you may find yourself lacking fiber because you spun it all. Maybe you’ll also miss the sharing of spinning and fellowship of the Tour. Don’t despair, I’ve got you covered! I’m hosting a Nursery Rhyme themed Spin-Along (or Knit-Along, if you prefer) in my Storied Yarns Ravelry group!
You can read more about it in my recent blog post; right now I’ve got a few people signed up already, so your remaining fiber options are BFL/Firestar combed top (an ahhhmazing blend that gives you the smooth spinning of combed top with added sparkle from the blended-in firestar!), Vegan-friendly Faux Cashmere top (suuuuuper soft and smooth), batts, handspun yarn or handpainted mill-spun yarn!
If nursery rhymes aren’t your thing, I’ve also recently updated my Artfire and Etsy shops with plenty of delicious batts and handspun yarns! Use code WWKIP to get FREE SHIPPING from now through July 31!
Happy spinning and Happy Friday!!!
