Spun up on my Greensleeves Damsel Monique spindle to take the thicker, textured single
So, I accidentally missed the last Challenge Day of this Tour de Fleece because I wasn't paying too much attention to the schedule other than start and end dates. This is also the first time I have participated, and I only heard of this a couple months ago since I just got into spinning this January, so I didn't know the structure. I also actually adhered to the rest day on Tuesday, which was absolutely marvellous for my wrists, which are no longer aching constantly.
Anyway, my original challenge for the Challenge Day was to ply my Suffolk on my new The Dancing Goats supported spindle, which was somewhat cheating because I have plied on my other The Dancing Goats spindle, but it was my Navajo Churro fleece that I blogged about before. Now that I think about it, it's actually quite fitting that the fleece I bought at the same time as the Navajo Churro also be plied on the same sort of spindle from the same maker.

Some of the Rambouillet locks I dyed and spun for this challenge day, from different section of the fleece, and under different light sources to give a good idea of colour variation.
And of course, I am still working on my MKAL. The second clue is out following a slight revamping, in which approximately 120 more beads that first stated will be needed for a more Corinthian-like column. It will be lovely, and it's not too late to hop in! Clue 2 is small to let people catch up, and there is a group for support and sharing progress.
