Tour de Fleece update and WIP-it Wednesday...

...first the update.

* Tour de Fleece, days 1, 2, and 3

I spun Surf and Sun [Ravelry]. This is an art yarn, spun thick and plied with thread.

Specs:
Started and finished 7/5/16;
Wild Card Bling Batt (3.6 oz) from The Yarn Wench;
80 yds. thread-plied with blue rayon thread and gold quilting thread; Bulky weight

It took me about 3.5 hours from start to finish, which is pretty good. I don't think I can keep up that kind of output every work night, though. I might only be able to get an hour in tonight.
