I’ve entered Le Tour de Fleece as members of 2 teams: Team Superfleece and Team Footloose. And just what is Tour de Fleece? The idea is to spin along with the Tour de France riders — spin along on the ride days. I last rode along for 2008.
Team Superfleece’s goal is to spin anyÂ Spirit Trail Fiber,Â Briar Rose Fiber, or a breed from the Knitterâ€™s Book of Wool, or theÂ KBOW Woolalong. My goal? Spin as many of the different wools listed in KBOW. Let’s see how many different breeds I can play with during this time. I don’t plan on finishing everything of that fiber, but enough of each fiber/blend to make a project, be it a pair of socks or a scarf.
Team Footloose is even easier — spin on a HansenCraft’s miniSpinner.
These 2 teams don’t conflict each other so I feel good about being able to satisfy both requirements.
