This week is all about single #4 and getting my finished yarn from last week to the County Fair.
Friday, July 27th
Saturday, July 28th
Sunday, July 29th - Last Day
The finished yarn is 2 oz, 164 yd, 20 wpi, 3-ply.
The remaining singles weigh 7/8 oz.
The remaining prepared fiber weighs ~8 3/4 oz.
Which means I spun 1 5/8 oz of very fine yarn during the Tour de Fleece.
I was hoping this bag would look more empty at the end of the Tour, but at least it weighs less. I'll be spinning this batch of Tibetan Mastiff for a while to come. ;-)
Gunnar says great! He's making more! ;-)
Tuesday, July 31st - County Fair Check-in
I dropped the finished yarn at the County Fair. Mine is on top of the pile in the center toward the back.

Judging began on Wednesday morning. Hubba and I will be heading over sometime this weekend to see the results. *fingers crossed*
I was surprised to learn that some people don't have much dog hair to spin.
Of course I realize not everyone has large double-coated dogs in their life, but for a group of Chiengora spinners, I found it surprising. So I offered two 4-oz packages of washed Tibetan Mastiff as prizes. They will be heading to their new homes soon.
I enjoyed having more time to spin this year, it was very nice being able to see that the bobbins look different each day... a good measure of progress... It feels good to see progress. This was a productive Tour de Fleece for me.
