Day 11

Well, this is what I've been spinning since Saturday. I pulled out one bump of "Selfish" and it seems to be determined to be spun so finely it'll probably take me another two days to finish the singles and ply. I didn't get much time to spin this weekend though, or today for that matter. Between my sister this weekend and helping someone move today, I'm exhausted. If I can stay awake long enough maybe I'll spin a bit more tonight.

Anyway, here's the first bobbin all posed for it's close up.

Day Seven, End of Week One!!!!

Today looks almost exactly like yesterdays, just better coils and better pictures. :)



A little skein of leftovers from the batt plied with leftover SCF singles from day one:


And the basket:


At the end of week one I calculated I've spun about 24 ounces of fiber (mostly worsted or chunky yarns of course). How much has everyone else spun?

Day Six:

When I first signed up and saw that there were two "rest" days, I remember thinking I'd just spin through them. Who needs a rest day anyway? Me apparently. Now I'm looking ahead to Monday with fondness and dreams of doing absolutely nothing....

Today's spin:


One strand is half of a batt from [suzie](person) at Giffordables, the other is some Mohair blend from Sheep Shed I dyed neon green. I still have the other half of the batt and more of the green, so tomorrow will probably look much like today.


I added in a couple coil-ey thingies as I plied which look okay (some better than others, lol).

And the Tour basket is getting crowded:
