Tour De Fleece, delayed start

I got a delayed start on my Tour De Fleece spinning! I’m going to try and make up for lost time! I returned to work after recovering from an injury, and I am behind on everything and exhausted. (and forgot how much work drama sucks the energy out of me!)

So no spinning on the beginning date of the Tour.

I did decide I would spin up:

4.6 oz of BFL from Parrot Fish and a pound of BLF/BL from Breezy Manor from “Orion” it is nearly black, and so pretty!


Well it is the middle of July now, and me with very little spinning, I’ll have to make up for it next year! 

Progress so far….

4 oz spun and plied, I have just started on the dark brown BFL.

Hope your spinning is going better than mine!!


  1. Very pretty! Can't wait to see Orion spun up.

    No alpaca? What happened to the alpaca that you were going to spin during the Tour?
    Good luck with the BFL. I love the colors you chose!

  3. Return to work...sorry to hear that, lol! Working full time really does suck the life out of you. It's the reason it takes me forever to finish one piece.

  4. Just wanted you to know that I've been watching with awe as you have knitted up a storm these last few weeks. I need a very specific pattern for everything! I could no more do it on a lark as you can. Nice fun stuff. It's too hot to knit here! Best to ya, Vicki.

  5. They say that getting started is half way there... so you're doing all right!

    RE: the work place dramas.... I remember those. So negative and energy draining. Good thing you can come home to lovely yarn!
