Tour de Fleece runs along with Tour de France and it is where fiber artists spin along with those bicyclists spinning their wheels. It runs from July 1 - 23 and there are two days off along with two challenge days. Usually I just spin along casually, but this year I joined a team with the Bookish Stitcher podcast.
In this video, from July 2nd, I show a little how I prepped some of my fiber, what I spun on the first day, and how I prep a batt for spinning.
Intoxicated socks-Cornbread and honey yarn, my vanilla sock
Cowl design for bulky/handspun/art yarns-I used handspun coils from Uniquely Yours
Merryall Cardigan-used a Cascade yarn I won and the pattern is paid which I was gifted
Trellis Infinity Scarf(crochet)-free pattern that I test knit(made by hand), used a combo of three handspun skeins: Fawkes Farms and Fiber Addiction x2
Plaid Triangle Cowl(crochet)-free pattern on Whistle and Ivy blog, used handspun I spun for use in plaid pattern: Wild Wool Farm
