When to the Tour de France takes place, spinners of the fiber kind join in with a Tour de Fleece. The idea is to set hand spinning goals to achieve while watching the cyclists get hot and sweaty. I have joined too many goals but it should be fun trying:
Process as much of the Jacob as possible. It is all washed but I have about a pound of a half that needs flicking and carding.
Wash two Shetland Fleeces and comb and spin a sample of each.
Spin on my Trindle every day and while at it, spin enough Fabulous Fibers Summit for making two swatches; regular 3 ply and Navajo 3 ply.
Knit on Dad’s cardigan as much as possible. It would be nice to be finished when I visit in August.
So I joined four teams on Ravelry as part of the TDF as my new Avatar shows:
