Tour de Fleece – Reflections

This year was my first participating in the Tour de Fleece, and I have 3 finished skeins (and a partial bobbin) to show for it. This is both more and less than I expected to spin.

Less because I thought I might spin 5-6 skeins in total, (and I might have, except the Carbonized Bamboo is not as nice to spin as wool) and also because the white Southdown skein was almost finished before July 1.

More because of how quickly the Sunset skein spun up (Note to self: fat singles spin up quickly!) and because of how much of the Carbonized Bamboo I got to. In comparison, the silk bump for my Rumpelstiltskin yarn was the same size as each of the 2 bumps of Carbonized Bamboo, and I spent 4 months on Rumpelstiltskin.

So that’s that: Tour de Fleece is over. Now what to do with all this handspun?
