when did it become july?

Well, five days ago apparently. This year has just completely whooshed by (and I know it’s only half done, but still!).

I’m hopping on the Tour de Fleece bandwagon and posting my intentions in the hopes of actually completing my goal!

I’m going to spin this roving up.

tour de fleece

It’s a dark brown corriedale fleece that I bought at the Royal Winter Fair last November, and had processed by the (now-defunct) Lindenhof Wool Mill. It’s a big bag of roving, and I want to spin it all up! I think it might just be quick-and-dirty style, 2 or 3 ply (haven’t decided yet). I did start spinning singles today, but I only spun for about an hour.

It’s a lot of roving. I’m going to have to spin right quick if I want to get it done!

it's a big bag

I seem to think I can bend the time-space continuum, because I’ve also got a whole lotta knitting to do and sewing that I want to get to! It’s going to be a busy month.

    I’ve been wondering…how are the veggies you planted doing?

    I was thinking ‘oh you’ll be fine’ until I saw the wheel for scale! That’s a BIG bag of fibre. You’d better get gointg.

    That is a frightening amount of fiber. I am trying to come up with a goal that is both challenging and doable. Is one bobbin enough? :)
