Just Keep Spinning

As most of you know, le Tour de France is going on through the 27th of this month. If you are a member of Ravelry & own a spinning wheel, it is also known as le Tour de Fleece.  It’s a challenge of sorts to see who can spin the most yarn. Most of us join in simply to challenge ourselves (and to empty our fibers bins).  I joined to try to get a jump start on handspun yarn I want to use for Christmas gift making this year. I haven’t gotten as far as I’d like to, but I still have a week to catch up.

My first braid spun, was dyed by me in my Coraline colorway.

Next, was a braid of Sim Slayer from Two If By Hand

Third was a braid of Cathedral from Frabjous Fibers.

I have done a small fiber update in my shop for my fellow TDF spinners.

I also put up some new yarns…a sweater lot of a new colorway & a couple mini skein semi solid sets.

Hi! My name is April and I am a fabric junkie. I started sewing in 2006, after my second daughter was born & was instantly hooked. I started selling custom kids clothing on ebay in 2007, then moved to etsy and hyena cart. I love to create fun, unique clothing for kids of all ages. I also enjoy knitting, spinning, and gardening, when I'm not spending time with my family.
