This is Day 17 of the Tour de France and Tour de Fleece. A rest day for the riders and for the spinners. Even though I’m taking a break from my spinning today, I wanted to share my first (and maybe only) skein for this year’s TdF.
This is my first fractal spin. I love the colors and the way it barber-poled. There are still a few thick and thin spots, but the plying helped a lot. So, so soft. I’m thinking it might become an open-work cowl or a pair of fingerless mitts. Can’t wait to see how it knits up.
Just for fun, I made a collage of “start-to-finish”.
Since there’s no spinning today, I’ve been catching up in my Spinning Journal, making notes so I won’t forget the specifics.
Still trying to catch up on reading blogs. I need a few more hours in the day. 🙂
