Did I really say that the humidity would keep the bunny fluff from flying away?

Tour de Ugh

The weather is no longer delightful. The heat topped out (I hope) around 103 and this seems to be the week of the 90+ degrees. Thankfully, the evenings are still cool. Next week is supposed to "cool down" to the 80's. But it's the 40% + of humidity that's kickin' my keester. Ugh.

Dizzy Hubby and I watch the Tour de France bike race every day, so I've started an informal Tour de Fleece project, which is actually a Tour de Fluff because I've got 8 oz. of German Angora bunny to spin and knit. It is from the fiber exchange at the Studio 66 Retreat

8 oz. of bunny is a lot of bunny!

I've added some Amethyst Merino for a bit of color (okay... and to make it easier for me to spin).

Humidity does keep the bunny fluff from flying everywhere, so there is a silver lining to the Ugh, after all.

I want to knit a lace shawl. I haven't really knit much lace before, much less designed it, so I need all the time I can get. Hence the Tour de Fluff to get the bunny all spun within this month.

About Me

I am a spinner and knitter in Southern California. I live with a very patient husband and two cats in a house full of wool and cat toys (with the occasional musical instrument to keep the hubby happy).
