I have learned some valuable lessons from participating in Tour de Fleece. One we all know but don’t always apply: Practice makes perfect. I have seen a steady improvement in my spinning over the course of the tour. I am more consistent in my spinning as well as being able to better control the thickness and twist of my yarn.
Today I have almost 600 yards of Corriedale drying in the sun. This was my latest plying yesterday.
I have always avoided wearing white. One reason is that I have always had small dogs who jump all over me. But another reason is that I wore white dresses in countless church ceremonies in my former life as a Catholic child.
But I am looking at this yarn differently because of a remark on the internet the other day from a fellow spinner about loving the purity of undyed fiber. I think this yarn will knit up as a nice vest once I finish spinning the rest of it. And it is off white after all.
Color is still my passion.
