Tour de Fleece
I haven't officially, officially been participating in the Tour de fleece this year, but I've been spinning more than usual, which I suppose does count for something.
I love how spinners all over the world set aside time during the month of July to spin - it's almost like someone giving you permission to indulge yourself a little and create! Love it!
I've been spinning from my stash - although I realized I don't have much fiber. Hmmm... seems I've only had time for yarn in recent years. I rectified that with a purchase from On the Round' s lovely shop. ooo, I forgot how lovely Blue Face Leicester fiber is to spin with! So gorgeous!
There is just something about creating yarn that is lovely. John is terribly interested and every now and again climbs in my lap to spin. I wonder if it will stick?
I took the lovely class over on Craftsy about spinning with color and have been experimenting with fractal spinning - love the result!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend! I have plans to take in a Knit and Crochet show, set up the nursery for baby and of course, knit. We'll see how much I get done!
