Tour de Backlogged Fleece
I’ve never done a Tour de Fleece before.
And I can’t claim to have done any preparation.
or serious training
that would make me think that I’m prepared for such an undertaking.
But here I go.
This is what’s left of Griffs Spring 2011 fleece. About 15 ounces.
I picked it last night, and my goal is to get it all spun up into dk/light worsted weight yarn by the end of the tour, July 22.
I think that this is a reasonable goal for a first-timer.
Clem is all psyched up about it. He’s pretty hard core, and loves a challenge.
But we’re only about 3 ounces in so far.
Griff fleece is a little bit of a challenge to drum card, because it’s kind of long.
Not crazy long- but maybe 5-6 inches?
A little bit beyond the drum carding sweet spot.
But I think we’ll make it.
Because I have New Boots.
And New Boots make you feel like you can do anything!
(they are XtraTuf!)
