Tour de Fleece Giveaway
And the winner is .....
Congratulations! And good luck on the Tour everyone!
Time for another Tour de Fleece! For those who don't know what the TdF is, it's an annual spin-a-long, that happens at the same time as the Tour de France. Many people set goals for themselves (or sometimes not) and its a fun time to get some spinning done, learn new techniques and of course, win prizes! As usual, I am part of Team Golden Willow and our group is quite laid back, there is no pressure and its all for fun. There are many groups on Ravelry for specific spinning goals, like for example, you want to spin 15 mins a day, or if you plan on using support spindles exclusively, or you use an Ashford wheel, or you only want to spin batts etc. You can find all the groups in the TdF Ravelry page here. This year the tour runs from Saturday July 5 - Sunday July 27. My goal this year is to try and spin as much as I can everyday and I will be posting my progress on my Facebook page and a final recap at the end here on my blog.
For my annual TdF giveaway I am offering a travel sample size niddy noddy (that comes apart for easy transport), a bunch of rolags I made with my handcards (wool and angelina) and a handmade spindle that can be used as both a support or suspended spindle.
There are several ways to win and you can enter as many times as you want. The prize will be awarded on Sat July 5th. Good luck!
(I am just trying out this new giveaway feature, let me know if you have issues FYI I will not send you emails unless you are the winner and also the "rules" don't apply at all. This giveaway is open to everyone and anyone)

Oh my goodness the fibre sounds luxurious and with the added beads, its sounds like it will turn out to be an amazing skein. I'll have to check it out when you are finished. Any plans for the yarn?

My goal is to spin up minimum of one hour each day.

I received my prize!!! And it's absolutely wonderful!! The travel niddy-noddy is sooooo cute and I know I'll love using it. What an awesome idea and so simple! The rolags are wonderful and I will love spinning them up for something special! How pretty they are! The drop spindle is so adorable as well! I've never used such a tiny spindle but it seems well balanced and so easy to take along to guild meetings, etc.! I can't wait to use them all!
