Do you remember those woven, cotton, fringed-edge blankets that were huge in the late 90s? You could get picture, just about any, on a cozy large blanket. That was back in my vegetarian days (and Birks, too!) and my mom got me one with cool veggie pictures on it. I've carted my veggie blanket all over the States as I move, and it's held up pretty well though it occasionally loses a string or two.
Which brings me to this morning. I had set up my wheel and fiber last night to be ready to go this morning. I woke up, got my coffee, sat down to spin and saw that my brake band was broken. And I didn't have an extra. I don't have much in the way of cotton around here, so I was nearly broken hearted. Until I saw the long thread hanging off of the edge of the veggie blanket.
Saved for Tour de Fleece! I drooled over everyone's beautiful spinning last year. This year, I get to play!
1. Spin and ply the 116g of cashmere blend, on the high speed flyer, for a laceweight.
2. Spin every day of the race, except the rest day
