Tour de Fleece - still treadling!

So far I'm still on track with Tour De Fleece. This is a Merino/Hemp blend that I got from D'Zined at Maryland this year. I love the way the singles feel and I can't wait to feel the finished yarn. The Merino makes it soft and the Hemp gives it a really nice drape. I'm not sure what I'll do with the finished yarn yet, but spinning it is really fun. I also got past the gusset on Mickael's first sock so all I have to do is the foot on that.

That's all the knitting I got done this weekend though. Why? Well the first clue went up for the Mystery Stole 2006 and, like last year, once a clue goes up the group gets more chatty. Unlike last year, this year's group isn't slowing down on the postings once they get to knitting. Either its the increased size of the group (we're at 900+ now and last year topped out at 700+), or people in this year's group have learned to type with their toes so they can knit and chat at the same time. Don't get me wrong, its a great group - everyone is helpful, kind, and its a really fun and easy group to moderate, I just wish someone would teach me how to type with my toes too!

Toes??? Well, my kids use a drop mike and some kind of software for their gaming that allows them to just talk to the other gamers while playing. I wonder if that would work for you? If you are interested, let me know and I will ask my husband what they use. I don't "game", I knit! :-) Kate/Massachusetts

Chatty? That's a good word for it. My email was inundated, I can't imagine how much time it must be taking for you to answer all those questions.

Merino and Hemp? What an interesting blend! What do you plan on doing with it? I'm intrigued. O.o

Love that merino/hemp...looks like you're doing great with your Tour challenge. Clicked to your blog from Spindlers for info on the Mystery Shawl and found out you're also a Tour de Fleecer :)
