Its that time of year again! Its time for the Tour de Fleece! d^_^b
The dates this year are June 29st, 2013 through July 21st, 2013. Plenty of time to spin spin spin!
So, in preparation for this almost-month-long-event-of-awesomeness, I’ve joined 3 different teams and started thinking about goals and what I’ll be spinning.
Team wise, I have joined (if you click on the images, it sends you to sign up for the teams ^_^)
~ Team Loop ~
~ Team Daybreak Dyeworks ~ (Dawn is SO sweet! You really need to check out her shop – her colors are absolutely gorgeous!)
~ Team Must Stash ~
I am so excited about Tour de Fleece this year… Its been about a year and a half since I got my wheel, and my spinning skills have definitely increased… making it even more fun and enjoyable to participate ^_^
So, out of the many many ideas that I have of what I want to spin, here are two that are recent fiber acquisitions
I joined the Two if By Hand fiber Willy Wonka fibre club… and this was the first shipment. This is called “Bean Feast” after the request made by Veruca Salt in the Golden Goose Room (which I love and adore that movie. Best version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory EVER. But thats personal preference, heehee :-P)
And! I also got the fiber from the SAL with the Knitabulls Podcast…
I think the colors are absolutely gorgeous… I’m not quite sure what I’m going to be doing with it yet. Probably Navajo ply, since thats what I’m most comfortable with. But I’m trying to branch out and get better that doing 2-plies.
Any tips on doing a 2-ply? The ones I’ve done in the past end up being over-twisted a fair amount because I’m worried the plies will come apart and not be twisted enough. Then I overcompensate, haha. Any advice will be appreciated v^_^v
What are your plans for Tdf 2013? What teams have you joined? I’m uber excited, I can’t wait for it to start!! ^_^
