Tour de Fleece 2016, Week 1


This year’s Tour de Fleece started last Saturday, July 2. My first project was to spin this gradient Corriedale that I’d dyed myself. Note to self: when dyeing gradients, use interesting colors. It was pretty mind-numbingly boring to spin brown for two days. Also, gradients make pretty boring bobbin shots. Proof:



But the yarn is pretty and I hope it makes a pretty gradient shawl.
