I could sit here and tell you that I plan to spin up a new braid every day until the end of the tour, but that would be a lie. I'm tore up! Shoulder, hip, back and hand pain, the kind you can't rub out or shake off. Yikes! Is it age or hours spent sitting on a hard stool?
The only reason I don't quit the race is because of my dear, sweet friends. If I'd quit, they'd have to listen to me complain. I'd go on and on about how much I could have gotten done if I'd stayed in the race.
So, for day three, here's where I am with the FatCatKnits merino and bamboo:
And here's where I am with my Freckle Face Fibers BFL in Purple Poppies (where's the purple?):
Before I could even get started spinning today, I had to skein up this mystery fiber (lost the tag):
It's not part of the tour and I'd say it's worsted weight, great for a hat.
I also ran out of bobbins (more like I can't find them) so I had to skein up yesterday's tour entry:
Sock Pixie's wool and soy in Willow, 2 ounces. I was thinking this would be a great give away, but it's got a couple of knots in it so I'll keep it. Probably make myself some darn pretty mittens with it. I held back the other 2 ounces for another shot at lace weight.
Next year I'm joining one team. And I'm buying stock in Aleve just for that occasion.
