Well, I know I did my part of the wheel spinning. Since Spinzilla ended on Sunday, I haven't spun at all. I actually need a massage to relax those spinning muscles. Three yarns will a total yardage of 3918 yards. I outdid my Tour de Fleece spinning. We were able to count our total plied yards as the amount of each single spun plus the total plied yardage. I spun over 2.2 miles in one week while working full time, attending cross country meets and being sick.
2 ply 566 yards 6oz 18 WPI
80 Suri Alpaca/ 20 Silk
356 yards 2 ply 4oz 14 WPI
70 Suri Alpaca/ 20 Merino / 10 Silk
384 yards 4oz 18WPI 2 ply
My goals for Spinzilla were to simply spin, have fun and meet up with other spinners. I got to spend two different days with spinners from West Michigan. It was fun to visit and talk fiber. Now it's time to get back to weaving and knitting.
I have two weaving projects I'm working on. One is for a secret swap so I have to wait to share that. The other will be finished and unveiled next week. Now, share your adventures in Fiber Arts. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving comments. I leave you with a view of our Autumn here in Michigan.
