Tour de Fleece 2012 Plans


Tour de Fleece starts today!




This is my first year doing the Tour so I’m in Team Rookies (and a few others). My overall goal is to try to spin every day the tour runs, if possible, and improve on my consistency. And I’ve got a few podcasts to catch up on so I’d like to do at least one episode’s worth of spinning each day.




More specific goals:

  • try to spin at least 3 braids or bumps of fiber, one of which will be Metro, the June shipment of the Greenwood Fiberworks fiber club, one undyed/natural, and the third to be decided later, possible something I ordered from Lanitium Ex Machina

  • try new techniques, like fractal spinning with Metro, or fibers, such as Finn sheep, Icelandic or Shetland
