Tour de Fleece , Day One


 I began the race with the Teeswater/Cotswold cross bred roving that I dyed.  It was a good spin and a great way to start off the spinning experience!
 Throughout the day I would spin with the espinner from my recliner (I am still not very mobile!)
 I managed to spin, ply and wind all four ounces.  (The race covers 198 miles and the way I play is to set my goal to spin yarn that will equal that distance in yards so I have met today's goal and then some...)
 The colors were very fun to spin-just like in knitting....just one more color and then I will rest...!
I have a 258 yard skein of fingering weight yarn which will most likely be a small shawlette!

  3. It looks even more beautiful spun than it did before you started!

Hat Distraction!

 I needed a hat for my Seattle son-winter temperatures have hit hard there  and since he works outside, he needed some insulation!   ...
