TdF 2016, Finish Line

This tour for was about trying new things and working through the Craftsy class. I loved the class and learned which drafts I like, and which I really don't, and which I need to work on more.

  1. Spin at least 20 minutes every day.

The final list:

  1. Completed the Craftsy Class From Worsted to Woolen. Used 63 grams of merino.
  2. Completed a crepe, a gimp, and a cable yarn from a 4 ounce braid of BFL.
  3. Completed a challenge of spinning low twist singles from 4 ounce braid of superwash BFL.
  4. Completed a 2-ply with a draft I liked a lot from the class from 4 ounces of corriedale.

Apart from the gimp yarn not being a gimp yarn I am very pleased with the results.
