[spinning] Tour de Fleece 2018

Tour de Fleece has becoming pretty much the only time of year that I spin yarn any more. I missed out on a week because of travel but managed to quickly spin 4 oz of wool into a low-twist single-ply before I left:

Once I returned home, I started into some very pretty white/purple/blue/green:

Getting back on to east coast time. 🕖😵☕️ And spinning. 🐑🌀#tourdefleece #teamcatitude #teamcoffee

I'm spinning it so ridiculously thin:

I am #spinning this so thin. The plan is to chain ply but it’s going to take 10,000 hours to spin all four ounces. #tourdefleece #teamcatitude

Because I want to chain-ply it to finish. It will be fingering-weight when it's done. But now it's taking forrrreeevvveeerrr to spin the 4 oz. I'm not even halfway through and TdF is over next weekend. I'll have to keep on spinning past the end date to spin up all the fiber I pulled from the stash. 

Lavender harvest seems to coincide with TdF, so I'll be cutting back all the lavender after work and bundling/drying. This makes the house smell so nice!
