Fiber Arts Friday: Tour de Fleece 2013, part 5

The Tour de Fleece is now over.... here's how the last few days went.

Friday, July 19

Saturday, July 20

Sunday, July 21

I sheared today and spun a little.


I didn't state it as a goal, but I was hoping to finish the full 5 1/2 ounces of cotton.  Then about half-way through the Tour I thought I'd be happy if I just filled the bobbin before the Tour was over.


5 1/2 ounces

4 1/2 ounces

In the end, I'm really just happy that I was able to spin each day... and even one extra day during the Tour.  I had been waffling on whether to participate because I wasn't sure I had the time to dedicate.  I'm happy I did.  I enjoyed the camaraderie and while my cotton is not finished, I am a lot further along.  :-)

But with only one ounce spun in three weeks, I guess that means the cotton will take at least 14 weeks of spinning every day to finish it.  :-o

Happy Fiber Arts Friday.

You will be happier with your yarn once it's finished.

Good for extra spinning day in the tour. More important you enjoyed the spinning, I'm sure it will finish some day.
