Tour de Fleece 2008 update


I did finish spinning all of my fiber from Etsy's CJ Kopec creations.





I don't have all of it off the spindles yet. This is my first time


at spinning something other than practice fibers.


I'm happy with the result and with the 4 oz I spun, I hope to knit


a hat to wear while I'm dog walking.





It is soft and I love the colors! Thanks also to Knitwitch, I bought


a spindle bowl and without that I wouldn't have gotten it all spun.


It really speeded things up.


All of this has really gotten me hooked on spinning.


Now I need a hat pattern.....giggles


You know how I love to shop, I found the cutest little drop spindle earrings on Etsy.


I think I need a pair!!

  1. Vicki,
    Nice job on the spinning. You have quite a bit to knit. Don't you have such a feeling of accomplishment when you spin yarn and then knit with it?

  2. Wow! The spinning looks great! Even though we make those speedy little spindle bowls, I don't have a clue how to use a drop spindle! Congrats!

  3. I am so glad that you had fun with your order. That is one of my favorite colorways. I always enjoy seeing everyone's creations. Enjoy and have a wonderful week!

  4. A dumb question Vicki, but where do you get your raw wool to spin? Also, please check out http://craftster.org. It's a huge site I found today, and will be posting on Friday about, but I recall a section on spinning as I recall.
    The color of the yarn you spun is lovely. Very pretty!
