The Tour de Fleece is over. I didn’t get as much done as I’d hoped, but having surgery partway through will do that for you. I did finish a mini-skein of Navajo-plied, spindle spun, Wensleydale yarn that I’m pleased with. I took three rest days instead of two, so I’m giving myself the red jersey of the "Prix de la Combativité", I tried hard and almost made it, but not quite.
Thursday 24th July
Did some more alpaca, but I think I’ve done enough spindle spinning, left index finger feels prickly. Switched to the wheel and spun the Cormo for a bit.
Friday 25th July
The wonderful thing about
Tiggers being ambidextrous is you can just put the fibre in the other hand… Stitches out, more alpaca on the spindle, it’s a good day.
Saturday 26th July
Lazy start to the day, but no spinning. Rest day.
Sunday 27th July
Some afternoon alpaca spinning, and we’re over the finish line. See that gorgeous grey?
I’m definitely doing this again next year.
