TDF Grand Finale

 The chair is being put away, the machine oiled and cleaned for a while-
at least until I dye the pound of Masham wool and the linen-my next ambitions lined up. 
 Last year, I didn't bother trying to fit in the Tour de Fleece at all 
 but I am glad I at least participated this year.
  I enjoyed checking out all of the other skeins in my Ravelry group, too.
So here is this year's resulting skeins-
1,241 yards of 2-ply yarn!
(Compared to year's past when I spun more than a mile of yarn, I still executed a good showing!)


  1. Congrats on the big finish!!!!

  2. Yay for crossing the finish line!! It is all pretty no matter how much yards were done.

  3. I didn't even measure mine - I am still working on the cotton top:) but I doubt I'll be able to finish it today... and it's not the amount that counts - it's the quality:)

  4. They are ALL beautiful. Now to find patterns for them and get ready for an autumn full of KNITTING!

  5. Well done! Your yarn looks fabulous.

  6. You did a fabulous job, look at all that beautiful yarn.

  7. Great work. You certainly spun more than I did!

  8. GOOD GOOD for you. That s more than a sweaters worth, or at least a vest

  9. Pretty pile of yarn! I had planned to do some spinning this week, but I find myself unable to wear my glasses because I can’t handle the weight of them on my tender face, and I can’t see my lap clearly without my glasses, let alone fiber that’s farther away than my knees...never boring!! Nice to see yours, anyway!

I couldn't wait to sample a bit of the newly carded wool by using my favorite drop spindle.  Since it had been a few years since I used ...
