Tour de Fleece Fail and Giveaway Winner.

 My only goal for the Tour de Fleece this year was to spin for at least 30 minutes every day of the tour. I was doing really well, sometimes even going over my 30 minute goal by almost another half hour. Life got a bit hectic though, and I got a bit scatterbrained. I completely forgot to spin on Saturday. Even though the goal was to spin every day and that's failed, I've tried to make up for it a bit by spinning for an hour yesterday and spinning today, which is supposed to be a rest day.

Here's the stats I haven't posted yet through today:

Day 14: 39 min
Day 15: 0 min
Day 16: 38 min
Day 17: 60 min
Day 18: 38 min

In other news, my giveaway ended today, and I have to say, I was blown away by the response I got from it. I expected that maybe 20-25 people would enter, and when I locked the thread today, I had 92 entries! I'd really like to thank everyone who entered for taking the time to look at my shop and tell me their favorite colorways. It was a lot of fun reading them all!

That said, the winner on Ravelry is Psychogirl! She's already been in contact and picked out her skein of yarn, which I'll have in the mail for her soon.

 In other other news, I signed up for a Stephen West (of westknits fame) workshop this morning! He's teaching a class on shawls in September at MadTosh, and I knew I had to be there. In fact, I was at the MadTosh store as soon as they opened this morning to sign up, because I knew spots would go quickly. I'm already looking forward to it!
