Tour de Fleece 2013 - Week 1

Wow, what a week it has been! I'm having so much fun at my first Tour de Fleece, look at all the spinning I did! :)
6 days of spinning :)
Day 1: 1.5 bobbins of 100% alpaca, spun woollen.
Day 2: finished my first skein of 2ply alpaca, 110g / 153m approx.
Day 3: finished 1st bobbin of BFL/silk.
Day 4: finished 2nd bobbin of BFL/silk.
Day 5: plied the 2 bobbins and I have my second skein of the tour. 100g / 400m approx.
Day 6: started on a new braid, a blend of Shetland/BFL/silk.

Unfortunately you won't see such productivity next week as I have to be away for 4 days (working, nothing exotic). I'm going to bring my spindle with me, not sure how much I'll get done but it would be a good opportunity to practice on the spindle, it's been much neglected.

Have a good weekend everyone! Happy spinning/knitting/crocheting/crafting... :)

Thanks for dropping by, there is more fibre arts fun at Wisdom Begins in Wonder. Indulge your creative side and join the party!

p.s. Team Wonder rocks!! :D


  1. Yes, spinning has taken the main stage.
    Next week I will be at the county fair for a few days so my spindle will get a workout too.

  2. Beautiful spinning. Hope you find time to spindle while away.

  3. That's a lot of spinning! Maybe you will spindle in some interesting places, like law office or court house, hopefully not in jail ...

  4. LOVE that aqua....and the cream....they're all lovely! :-)

  5. I'm with Katie - that turquoise/aqua all plied is just stunning.

    You do know I'm coveting many of your spins. :)

  6. Great spinning! The combination of colors in your collage looks great. So happy to hear you're enjoying TDF.
