Go For A Spin With Friends

Tour De Fleece is back for another spin, though this year without cyclists. While the Tour de France competitors have been sidelined (the start date has been pushed back to August with no guarantee of happening), spinners will still set off on the original June 27th start date. Each day through July 19th, Tour de Fleece participants will be changed to spin their fleece of choice. Want to enter a team for this year’s challenge? Wildcard Team signups are being accepted in the group’s Revelry thread through May 15th.

Makers’ Puzzles

Noticed a shortage of toilet paper and puzzles? Shelli Can has been working to fill that void. The eccentrically talented Shelli Can has set aside her pin making to create two puzzles that are now available for pre-order. The first, a 500 piece homage to makers and the second, a 1,000 piece image of toilet paper rolls. The hippest rolls of toilet paper we’ve seen, to be fair. Pre-orders will be ship in 4-6 weeks.

Knitflix-A-Thon Starts Today

One posted pic will be picked at random on June 19th to receive a $200 Row House gift card.
