The past 3 weeks have been something of a spinning marathon. Along with many others I've been doing the Tour de Fleece, a simple idea of spinning alongside the Tour de France. For every day the cyclists ride, you spin something.
We've had our own HilltopCloud team running, and some of the yarns that people have produced are amazing, go and take a look if you have a spare half hour.
I've mostly been working my way through Fibre Club spares, and samples of other odd things that I've been wanting to try out.
Here's what I spun, in total 2563m, 9753g, so not a bad effort. I am now spinning something dyed by someone else as I'm ready for a change from my own colour palette. Despite owning my own fibre business I still buy lots from other dyers as they have a very difference sense of colour to me, and a different range of fibres, and variety is the spice of life!
Most of these are going to be for sale on the stall at Fibre East this weekend, I reached out all the skeins for a beauty shot this afternoon and couldn't believe how many there were. Most are spun by me with a few by my friend Katharine that I'm selling on her behalf.
