See the wheel on the right side of my page? You know what that means? The Tour de France is back in town and starts on July 2nd. So will the Tour de Fleece! Yay!
If you're a member of Ravelry then you know what I'm talking about. I signed up for two teams this year, Team Lendrum (wheel) and Team Trindle (drop spindle). I usually only join one team, but I can't spin on my wheel at work, so I'll be trindling by day and spinning by night. With that intention, maybe I'll be able to spin five braids. I have my fingers crossed!
I've been warming up with some fiber that's on the wheel already. That fiber won't be part of the race, but it just might be some that I give away.
I like to watch the race while I spin (the cyclists have perfect form!) and even though Lance Armstrong isn't racing this year, I do have someone to follow so the race will make sense to me - Andy Schleck. Woo hoo! I hope he wins!
Tonight I was staring into the fiber cabinet and thinking about which fibers to spin, but my camera is missing in action. Tomorrow I'll find it and post pictures of my options.
I'm so excited!
