Not This Year

Saturday marked the beginning of this year's Tour de Fleece.  It runs concurrently with the Tour de France.  (A sporting event whose organizers are blessed with a much better sense of proportion than the US Olympic Committee bozos.). Spinners around the world compete toward spinning goals they have set for themselves.
Armed with fibery goodness and spinning wheels or spindles this competitors try to challenge themselves in tribute to the racers.  (Hear that USOC?  In tribute!). Similar to the event that knitters and crocheters did on the knitters social network, Ravelry while watching the summer games that compete every four years.
I would tell you what those games are, but I could be accused of besmirching and degrading those games.
While I just do not have time to watch the Tour de France or compete in the Tour de Fleece, I simply do not care to run the risk of watching those other games while knitting.  So I won't even watch those events.
Nope. Not this year.
But to all of those Ravelers still competing, craft on!
