Day 10 - still plying on the fly.  I finished up the first chunk of the braid, that's about 1/5 ... not so sure this'll be finished by the end of the tour.

Tour de Fleece - Day 9


Worked this morning 11p-7a so not much spinning today.  Went to see How to Train Your Dragon 2 this afternoon, so Toothless is here spinning with me.  Ply on the Fly is going well.  I still can't spin counter-clockwise to ply, it gets all jumbled up - I park and let it spin back itself then give it a twirl at the end.
