Tour de Fleece

For the 2nd year in a row I've been spinning along on Tour de Fleece while the cyclists spin on their bikes for Tour de France.
It's been loads of fun. I took a more laid back approach this year and spun for Team Superfleece. I'm ashamed to say it, but I've had some merino/silk on the wheel for almost a year and had gotten tired of the family's comments about it gathering dust. So that was my committment - I'd spin the 4 oz of fiber and ply it during TdF.
I'm happy to say I got it done. It's also the best spinning I've done. And the best yardage. I got 400 yards of fingering weight fiber.
On the wheel still spinning
 
Done. Much prettier in person.

Yay! Good for you, Kat! Nothing like TdF to give you a little push forward!
