I did it! The Tour de Fleece ends today, and I have the last of my skeins soaking right now. I have successfully turned 4 oz of beautiful blue roving into 4 dare-I-say also beautiful skeins of yarn.
It involved a little last-minute rushing, so any photos will have to wait until later in the week. Yesterday, I didn't stop to blog because I needed to get as many rotations on the spindle in as possible. I even spun for a few moments in between executing my very important bridesmaid duties:
But I made it, and after a little thwacking to distribute the twist, then drying overnight, I will have earned my yellow jersey. After the hourlong+ plying session, I might be just as sore as some of those cyclists tomorrow morning.
That is some smiley spindling action! :) Congrats!ReplyDelete
