The Tour has Ended

I finished the tour with a decent number of skeins this year.  Seven whole skeins of yarn finished.  I really put a big dent in my fiber stash too.  Here are the latest ones.  That final purple skein really surprised me.  I really disliked the look of the roving.  A customer of mine had given me some yarn several years ago and I had promised her a small skein of handspun in return and she really likes blues, so I thought I would spin it up for her.  This was a pencil roving and it had short repeats of navy, sky blue and purple.  It turned out to look like a tonal purple.  I wasn't expecting that.  And now, I'm not sure if I'm going to gift it at all, since it isn't really blue anymore.  We'll see.
