Spin spin spin

Today is 4th July, which means it’s the start of the Tour de France for this year, and therefore also the Tour de Fleece(I understand the date also has some link with Americans blowing up aliens with fireworks, but I’m not really sure about that.) And what that means is spinning along every day that the Tour de France is on.  I’ve joined up to the Ravelry Group for it – this is my first time, which puts me on the Rookie team and I’m also in Team Jelly Legs, which Jo set up.  That’s appropriate in more ways than one, as spinning every day will no doubt give me jelly legs, and I’m going to be using fibre from her etsy shop, Limegreenjelly.

This is the fibre I’ve started with:

It’s Blue Faced Leicester, and it feels absolutely lovely to spin with.  I shall post progress photos when I have them.  And do what I said I would yesterday and give some updates on what I’ve been up to in general!

    Hiya,

    What will you make with it, once you’ve spun it?

      I’m hoping I’ll have enough, and yarn of a reasonable weight, to make something like a cowl or possibly a hat. I think it’s going OK so far!
