Training for Tour de Fleece 2010

After spinning those Bunny Balls, I was anxious to keep going. The allure to create utterly unique yarn is irresistible!

There were quite a few pretty little packages of Funky Carolina in my bin and the two selected contain South African Fine, Superwash Merino, Superwash bfl, sparkles, tencil, firestar, and angelina. Wow, what a combination!

Across the span of this week, these yummy fibers have been spun into 328 yards of fingering weight yarn. Now that my wheel is fiber-free, I must decide what my Tour de Fleece goal will be. After all, riding commences tomorrow!

Take a walk on the wild side...spin Alpaca. The Team of Wonder is spinning lots of Wonder Roving which is primarily Suri/Merino and is delicious to spin.
