Tour de Fleece wrap up!

Hello! Since I’ve finally managed to get all of my chores done, I figured I had no more excuses to not do this TdF wrap up entry!

This was my first tour, and I joined two teams on Ravelry: Plurk and LSG but managed to not really post anything on ravelry of merit – I’ve been kinda quiet internet wise lately, plurk and twitter are taking up most of my internet time. Anyway, on with the photos!

So all in all? 19 ounces! 4 from lisa souza, 6 from cj kopec, 6 from zarzuela’s fibers, and 3 of 9 ounces from freckle face fibers!

Pfew. Can’t wait until next year.

On other fronts? We’ve temporarily suspended the house hunt, focusing on saving some more money.  I recently joined weight watchers and hope to see some real success on this.

This coming weekend I will be attending my first W.O.O.L. gathering and I could not be any more excited! Now to figure out what fiber to take with me 🙂

Recently off of the wheel:

Knitting is still going on, I think I’ll work on my swallowtail shawl a little this afternoon if I ever make it to the grocery store during the huge line of thunderstorms that are battering NJ today. Earlier we were under a torndao warning. I got a little anxious about it and had to go sit in the bathroom with haley. Hah. What a wuss I am 🙂

More hopefully tomorrow.
