Tour de Fleece - Day 13

I finished the first braid of Sweet Georgia Panda fibre today. It is lovely to spin, very easy to draft, and the fibre is nicely blended. The colours remind me of summer berries, the mix of shades is rich and deep. My intention is to spin up the other 50g braid and then ply them together. With luck, I ought to have enough yardage for a shawl of some kind. Here's the first bobbin.

I was delighted to receive a squishy parcel in the post today. You may remember that I won a team prize in my Tour de Fleece group, Team Superfleece. It was a $30 gift certificate from Briar Rose Fibers. I told Chris what my favourite colours were, and asked her to choose me something! There were plenty of big smiles when I pulled out this scrumptious BFL fibre.

The only snag is, someone else appears to be rather smitten with it too! xxx
