It seems like the Tour de Fleece is going on without me this year. The Rav group went ahead and started the event even though the riders won't be starting until the end of August. I just can't get up any enthusiasm if I don't hear Phil Liggett first thing in the morning so I'm taking a pass this year. I do, however, have a fiber story to tell.
Pretty Pressed Petals has crossed the finish line.
It has been a very pleasant journey that started at the SVFF on a blistering hot day last September.
Unlike so much of my handspun I knew it had to be something and not just live out its life in my sad handspun bin.
And now it is. The Pimpeliesse is finished-well almost. I haven't blocked her yet. It's too hot and I'm too tired because it was a grocery pick up day and I'm all worn out. It'll wait. As you can see I did play yarn chicken in the end but I won for a change. I've got a very small ball leftover.
The singles from the fiber I dyed on my faux MDSW weekend are also finished. As soon as I have the energy and some daylight hours I will get this plied. It's becoming another Pimpeliesse since that particular pattern plays so nicely with wonky handspun.
