Today’s blog post comes from Rachael(sarcazm), Co-Captain of our Tour de Fleece team and group moderator on Ravelry.
First and foremost some backstory, as this is a post about the largest international spin-along, or SAL as we spinners call it, called the Tour de Fleece. The Tour de Fleece that we participate in on Ravelry had rather humble beginnings, and was started bystarathena in this post fromKeep On Knitting In The Free World back in 2006, with a team of less than 20 spinners. In 2008 she brought the Tour de Fleece, often referred to as TdF for short, to Ravelry, and it has been growing every year. This year we bit the bullet and formed our own Wildcard Team, Team Countess Ablaze 2014, with an outstanding first-year roster of 30 team members.
