Tour de Fleece 2015 – Day 17

After a nice rest day it was onto the plying of the last of the fibre I had set aside to spin during this year’s Tour. Just as the riders must have thought that the line would never come in Pra Loup, I thought the plying would never be done. I just managed to finish it and get it skeined up before heading out the door to go to a comedy gig. It came to a very pleasing 880 yards of 2-ply fingering weight yarn, which has now had a bath and is drying.

I will be switching to a spindle now, but won’t get much done tomorrow as I have to travel to Manchester for a funeral, then will be travelling to Suffolk on Friday for a 50th birthday bash (and will have decidedly limited access to the interwebs).
