What is the Tour de Fleece you ask? The Tour de Fleece takes place when the Tour de France does. You watch the race, cheer on your fave cyclist, while spinning as much yarn as possible.
The general guidelines cut and pasted from the Ravelry group is as posted below:
Spin yarn every day the Tour rides, if possible. Saturday June 30th
through Sunday July 22nd. Days of rest: Tuesday July 10th and Tuesday
July 17th. (Just like the actual tour.)
Spin something challenging on the challenge day (usually the toughest
high mountain stage: we’ll figure out which one closer to the Tour).
Take a button if you want one. Then we can use the button on our
blogs in show of solidarity. Take it from here or grab a clean one from
the flickr pool. Come join the flickr pool!
Wear yellow on Sunday July 22nd to announce victory. Why not wear
yellow on any day you feel particularly successful? (Yellow is the color
of the race leader in the Tour - but here we are all ‘race leaders’)
Other colors if desired: Green (sprinter - think FAST), Polka-dot (climber - as in uphill), and white (rookie...thats me)
