Tour de Fleece 2011

Tour de Fleece has begun! My goal this year is to finish processing the fleeces I have in the stash. Not spin. Process.

Day one is dedicated to washing the one fleece I bought this spring. It's a lovely Border Leicester x Wensleydale ewe fleece. I have a dark fleece from her lamb last year already in the stash. Her fleece is soaking in the tub right now and it's coming out a variety of grays from pale silver to pewter.

Prior to the Tour, I also did some weaving.

I knitted a baby blanket and a monkey.

I spun some yarn.

And played with a new alpaca cria at my friend's farm.

All in all, I've been a bit busy since my last post!
