Still Pedaling -Tour de Fleece

Even though I missed five days of spinning while we were on vacation, I've gotten a lot spun during this year's Tour de Fleece. In addition to the Rocket Yarn Romney and the purple Susie's Special Merino, alpaca and silk, I've finished 4.4 oz of BeeMiceElf Falkland top in 'Bitten' - 360 yards of 2-ply in about a DK-weight. And started on my last bump of BME roving - 4.2 ounces of BFL in 'Secluded'. Hoping to have this finished by Monday or Tuesday.

This Tour was supposed to be about busting the stash and cutting down on the amount of spin-able fiber I have hidden away. So what did I do yesterday? Oh yeah - bought more fiber. Hey, somebody has to keep the indie dyers in business! (SpaceCadet Creations on Etsy.)
