I’ve slowed down in my spinning. Perhaps it is that I’ve recommitted to doing my dailies on Habitica or its that I’ve done a better job the past week getting up and getting to work. Or, maybe its that, as much as I love this creamy white undyed wool, there is a lot of it, I’m spinning it thin and it is getting boring. But, I still have probably an ounce and a half of it left to spin.
I think the last one might be weighing on me, because I think I’m going to end the tour not trying to finish this massive bag of wool but instead switching to the goat I’ve had a plan for all along. It will also probably take forever to spin, but I’m excited about it. I also plan to spin it thin and chain ply it. I’m hoping for a fingering weight. I have no plans for it after that, but it should be fun thinking about the possibilities.
The Tour de Fleece, when I first did it a few years ago, was an opportunity to get down to zero roving stash before the fiber festivals in the Fall. This year, it has served as an reintroduction to a hobby I had forgotten that I enjoyed.by
