Spinning has taken a back seat to knitting lately. But I've taken to my wheel again with a passion. There's an annual spinning challenge called the Tour de Fleece that coincides with the Tour de France bike race. I'm a huge fan of challenges, even if I don't always have the best record of follow through.
However I have started the Tour de Fleece and have made some progress. I'm averaging an ounce spun every day so far. Which means I have four ounces spun up so far!
The first bobbin is four ounces of Polwarth wool dyed by Adrian of Hello Yarn for Yarn School 2010. The colorway is called Roasted and the colors make me think of a roasted veggie kabob. Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet. Ply with something else, chain ply, leave as a single...who knows?
Right now my goal is just to spin as much as possible and worry about the plying later. Of course, I may (and probably will) change my mind about that sometime along the way.
