Le Tour

The Tour de Fleece started Saturday last and I have been chugging along.  Above are two of the items in the "to spin" pile. There is also some lovely green-gold top and I am working now on finishing some white/ green / black roving from *cough* 2004.  It is ugly but I am powering through it.  About half of the last part is left.
My goal for the Tour this year is a time one (again): spin 30 minutes a day.  So far I have been above that mark but not trying to burn out.  Spinning strains the same muscles in my left hand and arm that knitting does.... I don't want to have a blow out.

Oh no! I missed the start of Tour de Fleece! Thanks for the reminder. It's always fun and a good incentive to get some spinning done. :-D

It's never too late to join the Tour, as far as I am concerned. Dust off that spinning wheel!
