Days 4, 5, and 6 TDF and some Ren Faire fun

Some superfun ladies and I are all participating in the Tour de Fleece over on Ravelry during the Tour de France. Basically, every day they pedal, we treadle. Kinda nerdy but very motivating and a blast to be participating in my second year now. The team I am on is Laila's of laigrai who is an amazing fiber artist and super fun gal. Anyhow she devised a point system within our little group that feels like an amazing chuck e cheese prize counter so I've really been trying to spin a yarn a day. So far I'm doin' pretty good, but we're only on day 8 now. Here's some eye candy of days 4-6

Today was a really jam packed day of activity for me. I still haven't gotten a chance to spin but I did get to see one of my teammates Dani of pumpkinhaus (the second photo of yarn above is made from one of her fabulous batts) at the Ren Faire Adele and I went to today. Adele got a beautiful butterfly painted on her face. I took the window of opportunity while she was occupied watching the joust to snap a few candid photos of her. :D
When Adele and I got home, I got stuff ready for tie dying. She was outgrowing the ones we had done about a year ago and I wanted to get some onesies dyed for my niece so it was a perfect activity... right after we had an epic super soaker battle in the backyard.

Now that's how to spend a summer Saturday. :D

Ooooh - love the yarns you're creating during TDF. I've joined in on a team too. My shower curtain rod (aka - storage for pre-set yarns) is filling up quickly! If anything comes from this, it will be a yarny shop update :)
