Here’s what they don’t tell you about the Tour de Fleece (and what I forget every year): It is really time consuming!
And I don’t just mean the spinning. That’s time consuming enough.
I mean the daily photographing and photo downloading and uploading and Rav posting. It takes a butt-load of time! Which may account for the…ahem…complete and utter lack of TDF blogging…yeah…
Even so, I had a really successful Tour.
At the start, I set two goals for myself: To finish spinning and then ply the Corgi Hill Farm merino/cashmere/bombyx top in “Emo”….
…and to spin and ply two matching gradient skeins of Corgi Hill Farm 80/20 merino/tussah in “Hawk Brother.”
I’m pretty happy with what I was able to get done. My goals were reasonable on purpose, and it feels good to have a few new finished skeins in the stash. And my spinning mojo is stronger than its been in a long, long time.
Of course, I had help along the Tour, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge my helpful helper…
…she sacrificed many, many bellyrubs in order to make this Tour a success. Such a little team player!
