Week one of the Tour de France has passed us by, and after a heap of terrible crashes on the flat stages, last night the riders moved into the mountains, and as they like to say in sports commentary, the big boys really came out to play! Heh, sports commentary is a bit ridiculous when you think too much about it, isn’t it. I am, of course, cheering for Cadel Evans to repeat his victory, and I’m also cheering for the GreenEdge team, being the first Australian team in the Tour. They have had a pretty good run so far, hopefully they will keep it up.
Anyway, thought I’d give a quick update on my Tour! I’m on quite the crochet kick at the moment, I can’t stop thinking about new crochet projects (it really is so much quicker than knitting!). So I’ve got two TdF projects – a cowl (which I’ll tell you about another time!) and a motif stole. I initially thought I might finish the stole during the Tour, but I think that was probably optimistic!
But it’s going well so far, it has grown by another 10 motifs since I took this photo, so I’m pretty happy. And if you like this project, you can sign up for a class and learn how to make it!
