It’s Knitty production week and I really should be working, but my mind keeps drifting off to this:
Nearly 3 pounds of oatmeal BFL that I want to spin for the Tour de Fleece.
I dream about spinning it into a beautiful long-draw single that I would full and knit into a sweater.
I also dream about dyeing this bfl, national blue, bright violet with maybe touches of avocado or maybe grasshopper ( yes, those are pro chem colors). Not with total coverage — Â I want some of that oatmeal to show.
What are you dreaming about spinning for the Tour?
I met Sasha this weekend at a Maggie Casey workshop. Sasha has a new spinning podcast,Â The Spin Doctor, where she reviews spinning fiber, tools, dvds and all manner of spinning yum. Give it a listen and tell her what you think!
Stare into into the BFL vortex - if you dare!
