Tour de Fleece 2012

I am greatly enjoying spinning for Tour de Fleece 2012.  I have been working rather diligently on my Xchelbunny Camel bunny silk.  I had bought 3 braids back during the last Tour (don't we tend to buy more fiber during the Tour than at any other time?) and I didn't feel "experienced" enough to spin something so exotic to me at that time.  It was a silly notion because having spun it now I can say that this stuff is really well suited to the beginner because it is so easy to spin.
Here is a recent progress shot, my last braid getting added to the second bobbin.  The first one is filled up with approximately 75 grams of gorgeousness.

Can't Help Starting

I thought if I stayed off Ravelry's pattern pages I could keep myself from starting new projects and whittle away at some of the old ones. So how did this happen? 
BTW, the pic is of the awesome Kate Davis version, but my is queued and started!

I thought if I couldn't buy the yarn locally, I wouldn't buy new yarn.  So how did this happen ?

OK, I give up.  New sweater, cast on with yarn I mail ordered from Ireland.  Sure Donna, that's you all over.

But I am really enjoying it.

Also, spinning is going strong, which has been helped by watching podcasts like Diane's and Steven and Callie's.  I am spinning away on my Franklin Fiber in the Polworth Silk:

And and  I got my spindles out (literally had to dust them off) to work on some Spunky Fiber.

And on another note, I'm so glad Phillip won American Idol.

I think someone needs to make a "Hey Girl" with him soon...

Manners Much?

My mother always taught me, when you don't have something nice to say about something, don't say anything.  More people need to meet my mother.

Here's my Sharktooth. I like it.  Others, not so much...
