TDF (Tour De Fleece) 1st Half of 1st Bobbin

TDF 1st bobbin half done

This is my first bobbin of the “Tour De Fleece”.  It’s a spinning take off on the Tour De France.  We spin every day during the competition.  I got a late start, so I teased my friend that my “bike” was down for repairs :P.  I do spin a little bit everyday, not as much as I would like but life happens.

This bobbin is only half done tho, the first half is a dark medium orange and the 2nd half will be a light orange, tho it looks yellow in my picture.  Sorry my photo skills are seriously lacking.  I took the picture after starting the 2nd half so you could see both colors.  I will update when I I finish this bobbin and start the 2nd bobbin.

New Fractal/Gradient Spinning Project

2nd Fractal-Gradient spinning project

I went ahead and made rolags today for my next spinning project.  I made it from scraps that I had been given and tried to make the colors as aesthetic as possible together.

The first single will be the two shades of orange rolags in the back and the 2nd single will be a gradient of yellow (mixed with white), a really light orange,dusky rose, pink, then going backwards, dusky rose, really light orange and yellow (mixed with white), shown by the rolags in the front.  Not sure how that mixture will work out, guess we shall see.

I’m thinking of calling this colorway Sherbert.  That is what it looks like to me anyway.   Dang, now I’m hungry for sherbert or ice cream!
