Tour De Fleece Recap!

I did complete both of my goals, which were 1) to spin up the 8 oz of Yarn Pirate BFL in Zinnia.
It went from this:

To these: 2 skeins of 2 ply, a total of 160 yards, and 2) one skein of navajo plied which ended up being 25 yards.

I also 3) completed prepping the Shetland fleece that I bought a year ago from Schoonover Farms. It is on the bobbin and I've started spinning it, but I am sure this is a project that will take a bit of time. I ended up with about 1000g of rolags that I handcarded.

Was it fun? YES! Would I do it again! You can be sure my stash could use the help next year. Thanks to all the boards on ravelry that inspired me to keep it up!
