I participated in this year’s Tour de Fleece but apparently completely forgot to post an update about it on my blog! I pretty consistently post daily photos on Flickr throughout the Tour so some of you may have watched my progress there.
Once again, I participated on the Hello Yarn, Spunky Eclectic, and Southern Cross Fiber team. All of my fibers are from the Hello Yarn Fiber Club.

I love the Tour de Fleece. It’s typically the most I spin every year, although I’d like to change that. I always set aside the whole tour to spin as much as possible. This year I had a bit of an interruption in the form of my sister’s wedding. But I still managed to do something related to spinning each day that I had wedding things to do. 🙂 Also, the wedding went well!
Can’t wait for next year’s Tour! I need to work out a bit of a spinning challenge for myself, once I get my wheel back from my friend’s home where it’s on loan.
