I mean, look! Isn't it gorgeous? I may not like pink, or wear green, but Mum does. These will be a gradient shawl for her. Rhubarb is such a perfect name for these. I really want to jump in and start spinning these right away, but I must finish a couple other projects first.
They also brought back one of their earlier colouways from another smorgasbox – Bakhoor. It is red. With sparkles. I could not resist. This will become something for me. Probably a shawlette of some sort.
I won a participation prize from one of my TdF teams. (Team Footloose, put together by the Hansencraft miniSpinner group.) The wool is a blend of fine wool and alpaca, both undyed, by Foxfire Fiber. It smells so delightfully like a sheep. This was a complete surprise and an unexpected pleasure. I haven't got any plans for it.
This concludes the account of the fibre acquisitions caused by wool fumes during Tour de Fleece, or related to it. I added total of 1320 grams of wool to my stash. That is more than a kilo! Fortunately most of it I have a plan for, and not all of it is for me. I have plenty of fibre that should last me until next year, and next TdF.
I am not entirely sure if I'll take part next year because I ended up with even more wool after it despite my efforts to reduce the stash during the Tour. I need to spin up what I already have before even thinking about taking a peek at my favourite Etsy stores again.
