Well today June 30th is the first day of Le Tour De Fleece. Many spinners over at Ravelry will be spinning during the Le Tour de France.

I am on team Crown Mountain Farms.  I have very ambitious plans.
Klaus over at CMF helps all of us team members to have a gift of fiber.
He sent us the fiber of our choice. I wanted a nice blue so he sent me Copenhagen Blue. It is a semi-solid, the fiber is BFL.

The first fiber I am working on is CVM/Romeldale. I love this fiber. Soft and long. I prefer long fibers. The color is called Tramat.

Yes these are my shasta daisies growing in my yard. I love daisies.

So here is a group photo of the fibers and colors that I will be spinning.
