tour de fleece 09

this is what I finished spinning during the tour de france this year

TOP: grape ice merino 2 ply 450 yards light worsted 361 g
2nd ROW:rio merino finished 2 ply 1272 yds DK 504g
3rd ROW: lincoln longwool... waiting to be measured alpaca... not nearly finished
BOTTOM: hogget finn....480g..... still spinning singles will triple ply

not as much as last year but still not terribly shabby... if you'd like to see what the other ravelers made check out the Tour de Fleece group on flickr.

I was really happy that Lance made it to the podium. Contador did an amazing race he really did deserve the yellow jersey. It will be interesting to see who is on the Radio Shack team with Lance Armstrong next year. Rumor has it that Levi Leipheimer has already been recruited. Time will tell.
