summer spinning: the tour de fleece has been cranking along strong! our team, tour de fish, now has 22 members including myself! and although we have pulled away from the "loading dock" and aren't accepting any more teammates, you can still come over to our

thread

on ravelry & say hello!

supercoiled handspun novelty art yarn for day 3 of Tour de Fleece!

we are on day FIVE of the tour and i have managed to spin a yarn everyday for the past 4 days, and i'm sure when i get home tonight i'll be treadling away on my wheel!

me, spinning my wirecore yarn for day 1 of the Tour de Fleece

seems art yarnies are the definitely underdogs of the tour- but our team has a great support system so if even ONE of the 22 of us manages to make the top 2 we'll freak out & celebrate!! :D

i also did a HUGE dye day this week, where i churned out a literal RAINBOW of rovings! and am starting to crank (or as mr. rawfish says "batt it up" LOL) some yummy merino fiber batts from my new color palette. :)

rawfish shop

today! mmm lemon-y fresh sudsy delight! i can't wait to show you the other shapes! peach skully fish + blackberry sage leaf + creamsicle popsicle + blueberry bear are in progress and will be coming soon! :D
