Tour de Fleece day 18

I forgot to post yesterday (ooops). It was a rest day so nothing happened spinning wise but I was aiming to post every day. I caught up with some knitting and reading blog posts, so it would not have been an overly exciting day for you to read about anyway.

This morning I got up early so I could finish the first single of my blue superwash project. The fibre was taunting me yesterday, but I had planned to stick to the rest days and am determined not to break my self imposed rules on this one.

The first single is done. I think it is a little underspun so it will probably not be hardwearing enough for socks, it may end up as a shawl instead but I will see how it looks once it is plied.

During the tour I have managed to go from overspun to underspun, will I ever get the holy grail of perfect twist?!

I have just enough time to prep the rest of the fibre before I should get on with some work. Hopefully I will get some of it spun tonight, I still think I will not get this finished during the tour as I have something else planned for Friday, if not it should be done by the end of the weekend, next week there will be yarn!


  1. Oh, I have just realised I have until Sunday. I was thinking that the tour ended on Saturday morning. In that case I challenge myself to have this done (plied and skeined, maybe not set/washed) by the last pedal on Sunday.

  2. Argh! Is the TdF almost over? This month has gone by way too fast. Your spinning is looking great.
