Spin/Dye Day and TdF ends

Yesterday I met up with friends for a dyeing and spin day.
It was cool enough in the morning and early afternoon to be outside.
We all had fun!

Messy hands! I don't wear gloves when I dye wool.

4 oz. KP Bare in Raspberry

This is also the end of Tour de Fleece. I did not reach my goal of 40 ounces spun and plied.
I have spun 22 ounces, Plied 20 of them and still have 18 to go. Maybe by September I can have this done.
20 ounces plied. 20 more to spin.
That is 1143 yards so far.
