Tour de Fleece Progress – Day One

So Team Knitorious had an awesome kickoff party last night. In addition to consuming a metric tonne of food and a sizable quantity of sangria, we also spun quite a lot of yarn and taught at least one new spinner. That’s my favorite part – I love to bring new people to the craft!

Here’s my progress from last night – a nice bobbin full of BFL singles. I love to spin this stuff, it’s lovely.

Not a bad output considering I also had a glass of white sangria in hand most of the night.

And, for fun, a few pics of the festivities. I love these folks, as my friend Jean likes to say, they are my tribe.

Joy with a Turkish spindle. One of the best self-taught spinners I’ve ever met.
