The Ides of March Plus Ten

 The Shetland I need to finish my Galliano vest is finally off the wheel.

 It's not a big whoop but it has been a long time since anything got finished around here.

 It's still a bit chilly outside but it dried pretty quickly in the late afternoon sun.

 It's a wispy bundle of fluff. I love this particular Shetland. I hope I have more in the shed.

It even made me giddy with joy to see the salad spinner out in the sun to dry. It won't be long now until I can get some serious fiber production underway once again.

Now I've got another 3 ounces to work with.

 That should be more than enough to finish the back.

This is the TdF project that has gone on forever and I am more than happy that an end is finally is sight. I want to challenge myself to have it done before the end of the month but that's just crazy talk. What I should say is that I am going to have it finished by this year's Tour. That makes a lot more sense.


  1. Isn't Shetland a wonderful fiber to work with!? This goal is certainlly attainable-go for it and wear it for this year's TDF....No wait, it's in July and it has to be warm by then!!!!

  2. It's going to be so nice when it's finished! I love all the shades in the yarn

  3. Your Shetland handspun is so pretty. The vest is looking terrific.
