The Tour de France ended on Sunday, July 26. I admit I did not end up watching the final stage as I was on a train, home-bound from a lovely weekend with my family in Chicago. However I did get some spinning done since the last post. So the final wrap-up for the Tour is… Continue reading Tour de Fleece, The Conclusion.
The final selection from Tea Emporium that I was tempted by was the Chocolate Chai. I misunderstood and thought this would be a tea when in fact it really is more of a spiced cocoa.

I’ll warn you right now that this post doesn’t have much to do with tea or knitting. Every year in July there’s a little bike race that is held over in France, you might have heard of it? While the Tour de France spins on in France, the (fiber) spinning world sits at our wheels… Continue reading Tour de Fleece.
