This year, for the first time, I am taking part in the tour de fleece. Sadly, here on day 1 I am ill. Likely due to the drenching I got on Thursday. Since the spinning of the spindle has just been causing dizziness, I have completed a mere 2g of silk hankies today. But at least it’s something.

I am still getting used to the silk. It’s far stickier than I’m used to and I find it hard to draft. I may be better off learning on a top or a blend than hankies. We’ll see how I progress tomorrow though.

Anyone else taking part? How are you doing?
