Tour de Fleece is a nerdy yet awesome event for yarn spinners that coincides with the Tour de France. You spin (on your spinning wheel) every day that they spin (on their bikes). I have some pretty severe wrist problems due to my years of knitting too much, so spinning is far too painful to do every day. But I really wanted to participate in some way, so I'm carding batts instead. Don McCloskey at the Riverside in Brisol, PA. Joe King Carrasco at The Continental Club in Houst.
