I just discovered that Northeast Fiberart Center has launched its 3rd Biennal Fiber Challenge.
As stated on the website this challenge is an invitation or call to create something, given a defined set of yarns/fibers that you probably wouldn’t put together on your own (hence, the challenge) thru means of knitting, crocheting, tatting, weaving, felting, hooking, tapestry, bobbin lace, or any other fiber craft by which you are able to transform the set of yarns/fibers into a finished product for which you may win a great prize!
It promises to be very amusing and I’ll try to participate.
The Tour de Fleece 2009 has finished and I’ve got this wonderful Maillot Jaune.
It has been a wonderful experience! Thanks everybody!
I only have a problem now: what can I say to my family, when I’ll be handspinning instead of preparing dinner?
Need to find another contest as soon as possible! Please help!!
I’m uploading here the ten yarns I’ve handspun for the Tour de Fleece 2009, just to have them all in one place.
You can find more detailed images of these yarns in my previous posts here.
I’ll be updating my Flickr album as soon as possible too.
My congratulations to all participants who have spun so many incredible yarns.
Again, it has been an honour to be included in this challenge. I’ve had a great time!
Many thanks Katherine!
