Have also been participating in Tour De Fleece (which runs alongside Tour De France OF COURSE!) - and have been steadily wading my way through the Shetland Fleece from Shetland. The paper sack of fleece seems to be like a magic porridge pot - the contents don't get any less.
I have started on the third border for the shawl I'm knitting the handspun shetland into. However I've ripped the first couple of rows out twice now - as I keep doing *ssk k1 k2tog yo (rpt from *) just once in the middle of the correct pattern - which is ssk k1 k2tog yo k1 yo. And it only takes one small lapse of concentration to balls it up. Third time lucky, fingers (and toes) crossed. And I AM using stitch markers.
Then only a week to go to Fibre East. I am volunteering again this year - and plan to camp. Hope the weather is lovely again.
Not Not Not going to buy anything. (well - maybe a large dent heddle for my new Kromski Harp?).
