Tour de Fleece – week 3

The first two weeks of Tour de France/Fleece saw me spin, ply, skein and soak 300g of Shetland superfine fibre into useable yarn. I spent week 3 in Ireland at the European Juggling Convention and managed about 30g of Blue Faced Leicester. I am very happy with my spinning progress over the course of Tour de Fleece and feel like my skills have improved as well as taking the opportunity to try some new techniques. I hope to continue with my spinning and hope to try out some wheels at the Bristol Wool Fair in September. After the remaining 70g of this BFL is spun up I have some new designs that need writing up and testing out, inspired by TDF, so keep an eye out.
