Tour de Fleece mountain stage

Tour de Fleece week 1, originally uploaded by Bright Side.

Here's my spinning from week 1 of the Tour de Fleece, modelled on a mountain stage.

The bottom slopes are two skeins, one of hand dyed merino and one of the merino plied with black welsh mountain. I think that this looks like some of twisty Z bends on the fast descents.

As we climb up the mountain we reach the area of rough scrubland, represented by aran weight icelandic yarn.

The very highest slopes are steepest and slipperiest of all, and are represented here by butterflygirldesigns superwash merino and angelina, spun on a butterflygirldesigns jade spindle. Of course, near the summit finish we have the flamme rouge.
