It took me a little while to come to a decision but finally I have my goal set for this year's Tour de Fleece: spin over 2 pounds of fiber. I think I can do it as long as I spin each day. This afternoon I set aside the fiber that I'd like to spin:
I've started a monthly spin-along challenge in the CNY Ravelry group and for July my plan is to pick Corriedale/Colonial fiber. That picture is 42.1 ounces of fiber all within those specifics. From left to right:
Red - 18.1 ounces of Spinner's Hill Corriedale, Finn, Rambouillet Cross Sheep fiber
Light and dark blue balls - 4 and 8 ounces of Ashland Bay Colonial fiber
3 braids in green, blue & purple - 4 ounces each of Stone Edge Fibers Colonial Wool Top
It is a challenge for me and I might not be able to get it all done. I'm leaving the braids for last because they were most recently purchased. I thought this would be a great chance for me to spin up some of my older fiber that's been in my stash for a while now. I may be taking a day or two off from work just to make some progress on my spinning . . . I'm due for a day off anyway so it's perfect timing!
