As I mentioned last week, my bobbin of cotton was started before this year's Tour de Fleece.
Saturday, June 29 - sheared alpacas
No spinning happened today. I was on the road before 6:00 am, shearing by 8:30 am, finished at 7:00 pm and home at 9:15 pm. I sheared a personal record of 18 alpacas in one day at a farm about 2 hours from here. So by the time I was home, clean and said hello to everyone, the spinning just wasn't going to happen.
Sunday, June 20
My Tour is underway and I managed to see a little coverage of the race as well.
Monday, July 1
Tuesday, July 2
Wednesday, July 3
Literally only 5 minutes available for spinning today, but I did spin. :-)
Thursday, July 4 - Independence Day, Holiday from the DayJob, Sheared Alpacas
I sheared a for new client who is also relatively new to alpacas and gave one of their boys a Mohawk which I think turned out pretty good. ;-)
Then I managed about 90 minutes of spinning. :-)
At the end of the first week, I am down one day and I have spun a 1/2 ounce of cotton.... only 5 ounces to go. I'm thinking I may not finish this ball before the three weeks are over.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday, and Happy Independence Day weekend if you are State-side.
