Basketful of bobbins
I took part in my first TDF last year after watching from the sidelines the previous couple of years on Ravelry. It was a lot of fun, at least spinning every day, setting myself some loose targets and being inspired by what everyone else was spinning. So I have joined in again this year and again my aim is to spin every day, however much that is - some days will be more than others. My targets are pretty loose again too as I am prone to changing my mind what I want to spin!

My next yarn is some un-dyed fibre being spun ready for a dyeing workshop day next weekend, something I am really looking forward to. Then it will be time to dive into the stash again to see what to spin next, maybe some bits of part fleeces if I get them washed and dried, and maybe some dyed if I can find a little time to dye it too.
Other spinning prior to the TDF starting was the blue Corriedale in my last blog post all plied, now in skeins. All the Purple Haze yarn is spun and plied and in skeins too and I love how the grey has blended with the other colours in this yarn.

Enjoying the TDF, will enjoy the rest of the tour, being inspired, spinning and sharing the fun. I look forward to sharing my TDF spinning total next month.
