Tour de Fleece 2010 ~ Challenge Day!

Here's a picture of the yarn I have spun so far in 2010's Tour de Fleece. It's a pretty humble offering compared to other spinners. I bow to these prolific spider-women who have 4oz on a spool before I've even finished my first cup of coffee. Simply, you rock!

Today is challenge day, the day when we are supposed to depart from our spinning comfort zones and try something that is... well... a challenge. I'm going to try a loopy mohair.

I've never made a yarn with loops before and I haven't read any books or blogs about how it's done. I'm basically just going to go for it. Half the fun is figuring it out. Sure I could read how to do it, but where's the challenge in that? "No!" I say. Today is a throw down! It's between me and the mohair and I plan to win!

Wow, I would have no idea how to even begin spinning a yarn like that. Good luck!
