stage 1

The Tour de France has started once again.

Last year was all about Contador and Leipheimer, the Discovery boys who placed 1st and 3rd. This year, their new team, Astana, was not picked to participate by tour officials. I would say the yellow jersey could go to anyone. Of course, the Aussie, Cadel Evans is the favorite considering he was runner up last year.

I think I will be cheering for Team Columbia. Not only because they are an American team and "Big" George Hincapie is a team member, but because I am on the team for the TdF KAL. Yay!

I started my project this morning as soon as we turned on the tour at the beginning of Versus' coverage. Phil and Paul's commentating makes it easy to knit and "watch".

I started my second Clapotis ( link in sidebar) with some really soft and yummy Malabrigo laceweight.
Here's my progress so far:

I am participating in the Green Jersey "competition" so my goal is to get this finished by the time they roll into Paris on July 27th.

"Allons-y Alonzo!"

  1. I'm doing the Tour de Fleece, attempting to finish some spinning by the end. (Of course, I'm not actually following the race...)


Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)
