Tour De Fleece 2008

I've joined Le Tour de Fleece 2008! This year it's a spinning challenge. I bought more of Gale Art's lovely merino roving last week in pretty summer colors. I'll post a pic in a day or two to show what I'll be working on for my challenge. I will hopefully have it all spun up and plyed by the end on July 27. Thanks Nell for letting me know about this. Sounds like fun! Click on the link in the sidebar for more info. It started on July 5th, but they accept late signups as long as you finish up your challenge by the end date if you are interested in spinning along. Now I have the Kraftwerk song 'Tour de France' going through my head.


  1. Hello, INSANE PERSON. You should change the text at the top of your blog to say "My name is Doug and I guess you can tell by the name of my latest post that I AM AN INSANE PERSON!" You just got that wheel. Dude, you're making me look bad. Hell, you're making everyone look bad. So stop. Or give me your Tour de Fleece FO. Either way.

    Love and kisses,

  2. Yay! I have pulled out my stash of fiber and am laying out the colors to make the best use of most of what I have already. I was inspired by Melissa's (Nytefall) beautiful pats of color...
    I have set my goal low, with 1 skein, but hope that it gets me into a regular rhythm of spinning.

  3. And you've had your wheel HOW long??
    Addicted already. Gotta love it.

    I've always thought of you as a knitting machine - will have to add spinning to that concept.
