TDF 2013 Week 1

BFL skeinYou may have notice that I don’t blog much about spinning, well the reason is that for a while now I’ve not been doing a great deal of spinning. I finished spinning some sparkly BFL fibre (pictured left) a few months ago and was going to make a blog about it but somehow never got round to it.

As I was at Woolfest on Saturday I didn’t start spinning on the 1st day of TDF (29th June) but I did pick up a lovely hand carded batt by FeltStudioUK.
