One of the best things about knitting, spinning and other fiber related activities is how, though many of us lead very diverse lives and have very different personalities, the love of fiber serves as a common thread (no pun intended) that helps us relate to one another. We are the ones who can't help touching the yarn in the shop, feeling the fleece on the animal, noticing the detail on someone's sweater or scarf. It's the tactile-ness that we share. Too bad everyone can't find a common thread that would allow them to "just get along" the way most spinners and knitters do.
The Tour de Fleece really got my spinning batteries charged up and I have been working on my stash steadily. That skein in the middle is the Bluefaced Leicester roving I dyed.....way back here. I'm finally getting it spun up and, though it doesn't "look" like the kind of colors I usually create, I'm liking it a lot.
