In Which the Pirate Spins With the Tour.


I had friends visiting all last week, and so I’ve been spinning but not really blogging about it. After watching the morning’s Tour de France coverage, we’d sit on the porch or in the living room, and I’d spin for the Tour de Fleece. We went for a few bike rides when the weather was nice enough, and visited wineries when it wasn’t. All in all, it was a wonderful week. Here, Stephen is watching me work.


I’m spinning up eight ounces of Ashland Bay merino in a beautiful heathery green. I split it up into six pieces so I could decide to do either a two- or three-ply yarn once I’d begun spinning, but it didn’t take long before I decided that it would be best as a tight three-ply. Like most of what I’ve been spinning lately, I have no idea what I’m going to do with it!
