The challenge involves spinning every day that the Tour de France is riding. (We spin while they do. This is not my bad pun.)
I’ve been a little lacklustre about spinning lately, but am already feeling more excited. I’m spinning a lot more on my current project already.
For the challenge, I’ve decided that I’ll pull out three works in progress that I haven’t touched in months and do my best to finish all three. Then I will have more yarn and more space for more fiber!
We’re putting together a “team” from String Thing, which I think will be fun: we can egg each other on.
Here’s some pictures of the fiber that I’ll be finishing spinning for the Tour:
Some silk given to me by my Ravelry friend debolsillo blended with some Ashland Bay merino I bought from the Woolery. This one will be the challenge: I’m spinning it thick and even, and I’m better at thin and even.
Some handpainted Blue Faced Leicester top from Three Waters Farm, which is local to me. I don’t think I’ll be spinning the rest up the way I started, so this will kind of be a new project.
