Tour de Fleece Update: Halfway-ish Point

I've only added two finished skeins to my Tour de Fleece basket since last week. First, I finished a two-ply spun from some rolags I made on my Louet Blending Board that are a blend of shetland, merino, cashmere, alpaca, and other random bits.
My second project was finished over the weekend, I spun a thick-and-thin 2-ply from 4oz of mixed merino roving from Yarn Hollow.
I kind of like the way they look together - perhaps they will end up in a future project together?
For now, they join the skeins I spun in the first week of the Tour de Fleece:
Thank goodness the point of this event isn't to spin as much yardage as possible, because I'd really be failing miserably - there just aren't enough hours in the day! But I have managed to spin every day, even on the rest day, which is totally fine by me.

Hope you are enjoying the TDF, if you're spinning - see you back here for WIPs & SIPs on Wednesday!
