I am actually going to push out a second real post for the day. Mainly because this morning was a cheaters post. It had no real content and two, I have the time before I crash tonight.
So, the Tour. It is fully up and going at this point. I am still as excited about this as I was before it started. So excited even that I started right in on the spinning project I had intended to use as a challenge day spin. Oh well, I'll get my challenge in a bit early.
Yesterday we had a lovely pot luck lunch and spinning fest in the back yard. I showed you the collage of photos but here they are a little better than that.
While perusing the daily threads, I had a couple of insights. The first being that I am very jealous of other spinners wooly winders. I didn't think I really wanted one before, but the more I seem them on the forums for the Tour, the more I want one.
The other little epiphany I had was that possibly some of us here in Casper have a little problem. Like, maybe needing a 12 step program problem. As I was reading forums and seeing other peoples goals, I was amazed at some of them saying their goal for a 3 week tour was to finish an entire 4oz braid. Obviously, some of us have already ripped through that much in 2 days, plus some and will have several braids under our belt by the time our 3 weeks are up. Oh well, I can think of worse things for us to be blowing our money on than wool and other delicious fibers.
Being that I in two days have polished off more than 5 oz of fiber, my fingers were hurting a bit tonight when I got home from work so I dove into finishing my short socks up.
Okay, off to bed with me. I hope you all have a great beginning of your week.
