For you spinners who felt left out during the Knitting Olympics:

I found it on this Craftster board. And here’s the blog/site.

Here’re the “guidelines”:

  1. Spin every day the Tour rides. Saturday July 1st through Sunday July 23rd. Days of rest: Monday, July 10th, Monday July 17th. (Just like the actual tour)
  2. Spin something challenging on Tuesday July 18th (Gap to L’Alpe DE d’HUEZ)
  3. Wear yellow on Sunday July 23rd to announce victory. Why not wear yellow on any day you feel particularly successful?
  4. In the event I am the ONLY person doing this, no public mocking. Even Lance had to start somewhere.

C’mon. You know you want to.

My interview is in 45 minutes, and why am I all nervous? I need to eat brunch, too. Blech.

About the Author fyberduck

I love socks, lace, and all sorts of ‘traditional’ knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.

  1. Spinning through the tour will be no problem unless I run out of fibre! My husband and I watch obsessively every year, and even though I only just got my wheel I no longer have to look at my hands to spin, so I can watch the tour too!
