Tour de Fleece 2011

It's July and that means it's Tour de Fleece time again - self challenge time with spindles, wheels and fiber.  Plus daily random prizes on the general thread.  There are also general teams for rookies and spindlers and such.  I love this spinning spinning spinning with all its interchanges with other fiber enthusiasts.
For the past 3 years I have sponsored a Team Spinning Bunny.  For the past 2 years we have had a special exclusive Tour colorway.  Last year it was Bistro and this year it is Blymey.  In order to get the current color the spinner must join our group and then be sent the 'secret' page link.  Blymey comes in Woody, Polwarth and bfl/silk plus a matching but lime-less pixie batt option.  There are also weekly random prizes in our team.

We are now 6 days into the 'Race" which parallels the Tour de France in that we start and end on the same days, have suggested break days when they do and challenge ourselves a bit more on any day they climb steep hills.

So far my spinning has been thus.
Repeat from * to * until all fiber is turned into yarn.
