Oops, was a little MIA for a few days. I warned you that TdF spinning would be interrupted by working on the home remodel and indeed it was. There was painting to be done, disliked and repainted. Yes, lots of fun! There was also a movie to be seen (finally got to see Maleficent). And I may have run a Mom & Me race with my daughter this morning… whatevs ;-)

Likely spend more time on singles tomorrow and then some plying on Monday.
So it begins, another year of participating in Tour de Fleece. Once again I am on Team bohocrafty…
My goals are not lofty this year, keeping it simple given how busy life can be:
- Spin 5 yarns
Yes, that is it. My goal is to spin 5 yarns. One may be a simple two ply, one may be a coiled yarn. I may even go with nonstandard materials, that all remains to be seen. Regardless I will be spinning and…
