Today ends the Tour de France, and therefore the Tour de Fleece. My goal was to spin the first bit of merino and tencel, which I did. I then decide I wanted to also spin up the Island of Misfit Toys roving as well. I am nearly done, but still plying since it decided it wanted to be a fine fingering weight 2- ply. I couldn't be happier with the way this yarn is coming out though! Nice and even, and it comes across as a striped tweed.
So would I consider this TDF a success? Absolutely. My goals were to improve my spindling and to spindle every day. I worked on a new technique (pseudorolagging) and then simply enjoyed the process of spindling. I got a lot of interesting looks and had the chance to educate people on the process of making yarn by hand. So yes, absolutely a success and I look forward to next year!
