Community Eye Candy: Tour de France

Posted by onestitchshort on

If you come to my house in July, you will likely find coverage of the Tour de France on my television. I am no expert, but I love watching the riders meet the immense challenges that they encounter and seeing the beautiful shots of the areas they ride in. For today’s eye candy, I am featuring projects for each Tour jersey.

The White Jersey: Best young rider

The Green Jersey: Points leader (sprinters)

Clockwise from left: ishmaelito’s Tippi, cilvedson’s Arctic Baby Cardi, Casdena’s Guacamole Not Included and JnAknit’s Belmont.

The Polka Dot Jersey: Best climber (king of the mountain)

Clockwise from left: he cannon’s Happy Colours Blanket, koukutettu’s Pilkkulaukku, AmieC’s Clemson Polka Dot Blanket and megancooper13’s Polka Dot Stripes Cowl.

The Yellow Jersey: General Classification leader

Each year while the Tour de France happens, spinners also come together on Ravelry to challenge themselves in different ways as a part of the Tour de Fleece. It’s fun to watch the beautiful yarn that is created in the Tour gallery, even if you don’t participate.
