Tour de Fleece-Day 1

So I was informed of a spinning event on Ravelry, called the Tour de Fleece. You take part in spinning on the same days that the bikers are riding for the Tour de France. I thought that this would give me a chance to work on my stash and try some new techniques like the wrap and turn or coils. I can't wait! Well I shouldn't say that considering today was the first day of the event. I got a few yds in on my drop spindle, but not too much. I'm dog sitting, so I don't have my wheel with me. I was sad at first, but it's giving me a chance to work on my drop spindles. Yes, spindles. I have 3 that still have projects on them. I haven't touched them since I got my spinning wheel. I'm here til Monday evening, so it'll be nice to work on them again til I'm back at my place and on my wheel again.
