I’ve never done a Tour de Fleece before.
And I can’t claim to have done any preparation.
or serious training
that would make me think that I’m prepared for such an undertaking.
But here I go.
This is what’s left of Griffs Spring 2011 fleece. About 15 ounces.
I picked it last night, and my goal is to get it all spun up into dk/light worsted weight yarn by the end of the tour, July 22.
I think that this is a reasonable goal for a first-timer.
Clem is all psyched up about it. He’s pretty hard core, and loves a challenge.
But we’re only about 3 ounces in so far.
Griff fleece is a little bit of a challenge to drum card, because it’s kind of long.
Not crazy long- but maybe 5-6 inches?
A little bit beyond the drum carding sweet spot.
But I think we’ll make it.
Because I have New Boots.
And New Boots make you feel like you can do anything!
(they are XtraTuf!)
New boots do make you feel like you can do anything! Have fun with Griff.
(not touring this year)
Best of luck on the Tour de Fleece challenge. I’m rooting for ya!
Love it :-D.
luv the boots!
That fiber looks wonderful. I love the color of it. And new boots? yeah!
