Tour deFleece Finish Line ! ! !

I thought I had all the braid spun till yesterday. I found the last half and spun that yesterday and plied today. 
I used the turkish spindle to wind the shorter parts that were left on my jumbo bobbins into cops then plied from them to use up the entire braid. 
I’ve never done that before! 

Here's what I spun Saturday and posted for Tour deFleece. The bobbin and little bunch on the left is what I plied today. 
The big skein in the middle is a bunch of purple singles spun and plied on Friday.

Tour de Fleece update July 18-20, 2016

  My spinning for the week so far


 Plied yarn from Wednesday , July 20, 2016. 
 Romney undyed plied with dyed forest green variegated Romney. I liked spinning that.
 I got a nice balanced  single and 2 ply. That's a real accomplishment for me!

Tour de Fleece update

This was the start for me.


To observe and participate in Opening Day of Tour de Fleece, I did a spinning demonstration for my Crochet and Knitting students.
One of my students shot this video on her phone. (no sound)
Hmm, maybe there is sound but nothing to hear really.  Thank you, Miss Patti. :0)
