Cherry Blossom Delight

by Aimee on July 31, 2008

I decided this year that I would do the Tour de Fleece again – I had a lot of fun last year and I learned a lot about my spinning, even though last year I only did 15 minutes a day.

This year I did a little more – and here is the first of the finished skeins – there are 2 more to keep your eye out for!

This colorway was a little more orange than I thought from the online pic, however it spun beautifully and I love the way it looks now that it is spun and plyed! I also have a thing for cherry blossoms, so I had faith that this would work out in the end!

I will definitely be getting more of this roving in the future!!!

Remind me next year to take part in Tour de Fleece. There I said it, in public. :) Your stuff always looks so great. What do you think you will make with this?

Yum! Looks good enough to eat. I’m retired and make a lot of things for charity, so handspun doesn’t fit the budget. I’ve no interest in spinning my own yarn. Too many craft projects and too little time, even in retirement.
