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

...spinning progress has slowed down.

We are trying to get our house in shape for my niece and her family.  They arrive Saturday so we are rearranging my studio as temporary sleeping quarters. My work table can be easily reconfigured to fit against the fabric bookcases because it is two small bookcases and a desktop. One of the reasons that I never permanently connected them was so I could move it by myself. That was a good plan!

Turning part of the studio into a guest room means that I can't easily access my spinning wheel. I'm spindle spinning for now.

Tour de Fleece, Day 17 (7/20) and Day 18 (7/21):
Spinning the singles for a 2.0 oz. batt from Purlescence Yarns. I received this batt as a prize for participating on Team Spinning Purls in 2013. It feels right to spin it during Tour de Fleece! This is Empress handspun [Ravelry] so far:
