tour de fleece 2009 day one

I've missed you more.

I joined the Tour de Fleece this year (via Ravelry) because I can't live in my pyjamas behind shuttered windows like the past months anymore. I needed an intense distraction from the choke of my heart and the TdF was a last minute decision to get me moving and burying, or at least on my feet.

I'm not going to spin the whole 22 days-- instead I'll comb the latest lovely corriedale lamb fleece from Whitefish Bay Farm, spin it and knit Yvonne from CoCoKnits before the end of the challenge.

Ready to go. Or at least move.

(Not really ready. But still.)

::hug:: I missed your blog!

That fleece is gorgeous. We bought a cormo at Retzlaff that we're going to comb; maybe you should come down for a day and comb with us, Mast-a Comb-a!

Yes! More combed fiber! And do you know what yarn you'll use for Yvonne?

Wow, that's a gorgeous fleece, and wow! That's a lot to do, good luck!

Yum! Can't wait to see your progress. Good to have you back blogging.

I really missed your blog and I'm happy to see you're participating in the TdF too! I've been swooning over that fleece ever since you first posted it so I can't wait to see how it all turns out.

Part of my goal is also to wash and comb the fleeces I have here and you've been my inspiration for preparing raw wool. :)
