Tour de Fleece Week 1! Tour de Fleece has begun!

This is my first year, really because last year I did join the Ravelry group for Tour de Fleece but was not able to go beyond the first day. I didn't know how to spin, which was a big problem haha.

This year, I'm spinning beautiful merino top from Paradise Fibers. I only had 4oz of it in my stash but I just ordered 12 more oz of it.

I'm going to spin this and knit something for a friend. This friend is currently working on a crochet evening gown for me! I am super honored. I am so excited, you have no idea. :D

Last month, the Kiwi group on Ravelry organized a fiber swap! This is what I got! I love the cute crochet amigurumi, and the smart little gauge ruler. And the fiber! Looks super yummy! It's blue faced leiscester, 3.5oz. I can't wait to spin it into socks. :)
