The challenge: Spin the 2.5 pounds of orange-dyed superwash wool from Sheep Shed Studios into singles and ply them into a 3-ply, worsted-weight yarn for my Ravelympics project (another Orange Rhinebeck sweater). I have no idea if this is even possible, but I like a challenge.
The bonus: If I spin all the orange I will choose one of the other fibers pictured and work on that. Or if I am away from home for an extensive time, I will take my Kuchulu along and work on the top left Dicentra Salt Marsh fiber.
Another bonus: So far, no trademark complaints from the Tour de France people. And I might even get to watch the segments that are broadcast here.
The host: Ravelry, of course!
The teams: I have signed up for Peloton, Stashbusters, Team Ashford, and Team SSS. If I spin on my Kuchulu I will link up with Team Jenkins Turkish Spindles. I can't commit to a photo every day, but I'll certainly do my best. Most of the photos will be orange, of course!
I had a great time as a rookie TDF spinner last year and made a big dent in the stash, as well as learning to Navajo-ply. Now it's time to get it to the point where I won't feel guilty if I buy more!
