Tour de Fleece Recap
The Tour de France ended Sunday, and along with it the Tour de Fleece I told you about a few weeks ago.
This was my first year participating, and I think I can say it was a success. I met my primary goal of spinning at least 10 minutes every day, even the weekend we had house guests. Most days I spun for closer to an hour.
The result? I've spun about 11 ounces of the polwarth/silk blend into singles. I also spun the fulled single I posted about previously.
I definitely think the daily spinning has improved my spinning a great deal. I probably won't continue to spin every single day, but I do want to try to spin at least 3-4 days a week. I'm going to be trying to tackle some non-fiber goals in August, so I while I want to keep spinning consistently, I'll step back a bit to allow more time for some other activities.
All in all, I enjoyed Tour de Fleece and knowing that I was part of a larger group also trying to achieve their own spinning goals. I didn't participate in the Ravelry groups as much as I probably should have, but maybe next year. Because I will definitely try to spin again in next year's Tour.
