176:365 Tour de Fleece

I'm getting ready to participate in something called the "Tour de Fleece." It's where spinners form teams and spin every day of the Tour de France. Sounds silly, but it's a lot of fun. I'm a member of an online knitting and fiber arts community called Ravelry, and that's where I heard about it.

This fiber is Blue Faced Leister. It's top (I think - it might be roving) and it's really, really beautiful, and wonderful to spin. It's from Miss Babs, and I think the colorway is Deep Forest Green. I've got a pound of it and have spun up a quarter. I hope to spin the rest during the Tour.
