Happy Sunday everyone!
What a fun start to the Tour de Fleece!
It was amazing yesterday to keep track on Ravelry and see all the different fibres and spinning that was going on. I am really enjoying being a part of the Rookies team and Especially Team Must Stash Podcast.
I am continuing to spin my 100 grams bluefaced leicester roving from Dragonfly Dyewerx on my drop spindle. I started the day with 70 grams to go.
It is a hot Canada Day long weekend here in Calgary and I wanted to make the most of both the weather and my chance to spin. The only solution? Backyard spinning!
Yesterday, I spun 14 grams and am almost at the halfway point of my roving. I want my final product to be a two ply yarn so I will wind off the single from my spindle to a bobbin (aka toilet paper roll) soon.
To celebrate to start of the Tour de Fleece, I have another 100 grams of of hand dyed BFL from Dragonfly Dyewerx for one of you! This lovely wool is soft with a long staple and is great for any level spinner. Just leave a comment a comment to this post and I will randomly draw a name next Sunday. Please include either your Ravelry name or email so I can contact you. As always, I'm happy to ship anywhere.
Finally a bit of housekeeping...
