It’s that time of year and this year’s spinning event, the Tour de Fleece is only one week away. Wipe tbe dust off your spinning wheel or drop spindle, head over to their Ravelry group, join Team WeaveSpinDyeIE and start spinning-along when the Tour de France takes off on Saturday 7th July.
Did you know that this Spin Along is one of my favourites. It’s the one time of the year that I enhance my handspun stash by only spinning with a drop spindle.
Yes, a drop spindle not a spinning wheel. I opted out of purchasing a spinning wheel because they cost alot of money. A drop spindle and handdyed spinning fibre is the way to go.
My message to the knit collective, you don’t need a wheel to spin yarn. Urban spinning is good to go for the Tour de Fleece.
No worries if you can’t join Team WeaveSpinDyeIE this year, we’re always looking for cheerleaders, massages, first aid, trainers, etc. at any stage the Tour. Head on over to the Irish Guild of Weavers Spinners and Dyers Ravelry group for this yearly event.
Let”s get our spin on!
