I am so close to winning this thing I can taste the champaign! I am on Team My Favorite Sheep this year. For those who don't know, the Tour de Fleece is a spinning challenge on Ravelry that occurs every year during the Tour de France. Each day the cyclists run, so do the spinners. Just like a lot of the cyclists each spinner is really only competing against their own personal best. My goal this year is to finish spinning the mountain of Shetland/mohair I purchased from Under the Son Farm many moons ago so that I can weave it into a throw. That ball of roving on the right is all I have left to spin. Ignore that wad of single ply next to it. That was one of those 5,000 school children watching me spin on the great wheel days. I grabbed it and RAN for my life at 5:00 p.m. without using the ball winder. (Seriously it was only a matter of time before they realized they had us outnumbered.)
I know I am going to finish this, but I am running into an obstacle. The motion used to wind the plied yarn onto the niddy noddy makes my shoulder sting, my face cringe and my mouth say bad words. I may need to buy some more bobbins for my wheel to store them on.
