Today is a big day for me.
Today is the first day of the Tour de France and Ravelry hosts a spin-along to go with it called the Tour de Fleece. Every day that the Tour goes on we spin. It runs from June 30 through July 22. It is all done on your own personal goals that you wish to reach which mine are big big big. I want to spin through all of my stash so that I have nothing left at the end of the event. This is what I am starting with. I have a lot to do but I am being given all the time I need to do it in.
This is 100% alpaca
This is also 100% alpaca
Plus I want to literally spin as well. I have been on a weight loss journey and so far have lost 50 lbs ! I have 55 more to go before I can have the surgery to donate my liver to my mom. I am going to get on my actual bicycle every single day during the Tour and cycle at least one mile a day. The more the better of course. If it is yucky outside then I go to the gym and I cycle there. I will do this. I must.
And at the end of all of it Dan said he will buy me anything I want. He will replenish all of my fiber so that I start all new. This is going to be an amazing journey and it all starts today. I am so excited.
In the end I will be thinner, have more yarn, I get to go shopping, and maybe I can finally give my mom the gift she desparately needs. Which means no spinning or knitting for a month or more but eh I will get lots of time afterwards with the bed rest.
