the Tour

I'm participating in my first Tour de Fleece this year. Today is day 1 and my sister & nieces are in town so I was hauling my wheel around. My youngest niece (aka the knitter) was completely fascinated. She tried drafting but was content to work the treadle while I did the drafting.

We spun a bobbin full of mystery fiber and then plied it up.

I've promised my oldest niece that I'll spin her some yarn, too. And then they're coming over for an afternoon of Kool Aid dyeing. It's either going to be a total disaster or a lot of fun.

She seens so happy! It's my first year of TdF as well.

I think they're going to love Kool Aid Dyeing! I've never done it myself, but it's gotta be a lot of fun, if somewhat messy!

I love that pic of her holding the skein. So cute!
