Tour de Fleece 2011!

Tour de Fleece 2011

Oh boy, are you going to get tired of seeing this image. 😉

I’m participating in the Tour de Fleece 2011. What does this mean? Every day that the Tour de France is sending people up and down mountains and all over the countryside of France, I’ll be treadling along with the cyclists in spirit – and hopefully cranking out a metric buttload of lovely yarns in the meantime. In other words, I’ll be busy from July 2nd until July 24th! [I do get to rest on the 11th and 18th, just like the riders do.]

My first goal is to spin at least one yarn a day, and that yarn should be at least 200 yards, if not more. I also would like to try a new art yarn technique on the 22nd, which is the most challenging day of the actual Tour – the toughest mountain stage over the Col du Galibier for the second time, and finishing up on Alpe d’Huez, meeple. I’m probably going to have it much easier than the cyclists will!

If you are also spinning the Tour de Fleece, I’d love to hear about your progress. I’ll be updating here and on Ravelry – look for the icon with Genevieve and the “leader’s yellow” in the background!
