Tour de Fleece

Week 2 of the Tour saw me spin my first 4ply yarn. It was fun! The fibre is Shetland from Southern Cross Fibre in 'Koala'. It's about DK-ish weight, 105g and 174m.

Next up on the wheel is some more SCF this time Polwarth in 'Adelaide'. My home town brilliantly brought to life with fibre and dye!

Tour De Fleece

Yes, it's that time of year again. Men in tight lycra are touring France and I am spinning for the Tour de Fleece.

I started really well yesterday and spun and plied 4oz of Spunky Eclectic May 09 club fibre - Romney in 'Pansy'.

Today I have hardly spun at all... I started some Southern Cross Fibre Shetland in 'Koala'. The fibre demanded to be next in the spinning list by leaping off the stash pile and attacking me.

It's great to be spinning again, it's been a looooong time...

My New Idea

I've decided to do some occasional posts about my commute to my new job in Oxford and my explorations of Oxford itself. It's such a fascinating place!

Where better to start than with my view each morning...

Will the train ever come? ;-)
