Last year, I was involved with a spin-a-long with the Fricke community, so I took a pass, but this year I think I am going to compete in the Tour de Fleece. Just so you know what kind of loopy this is, the first guideline (guideline, not rule) is this:
Spin every day the Tour rides, if possible. Saturday July 3rd through Sunday July 25th. Days of rest: Monday July 12th, Wednesday July 21st. (Just like the actual tour)
So, that is my goal. I am also setting the goal to spin up the pound of corriedale I dyed at Yarnschool on my Fricke. I'm thinking a nice two-ply that would make a suitable sweater or vest.
The intended fiber:
I worry that I might finish it before the end, so I need to come up with something else just in case. Maybe this?
Since I'll be doing some traveling, I think I need a spindle to take, just to keep up with the goal of spinning every day....
Of course, I'll need to be sipping some Le Tour de France
just to keep in the spirit of things.
