Spinzilla Final Counts!

So yeah, I fell behind on posting daily like I had planned to, but I didn’t want to stop spinning! Instead, here is one post with everything in it.

My totals are 1,811.8 yards, 2.05lbs, 1.02¬† miles spun. Spinzilla counts are 3,469.4 yards and 1.97 miles. Either way I spun over one mile of yarn! Last year I made it over two, but I didn’t spin as often this time because I had other things going on.

I have labeled the pictures with the names of the companies the fiber was from, and colorway if available, in case anyone is curious.

Spinzilla Day Three

Today I spun up 100% Cormo fiber from Foxhill Farm. 64 yards n-ply. Cormo is a favorite of mine to spin. If you are a spinner and have not yet spun this wool, then make sure to try it out sometime. You won’t regret¬† it!

Spinzilla Days One and Two

It’s that time of the year again…Spinzilla! Spinzilla started yesterday at 12:01am. I did not start spinning until I got home from work. I got one skein done and I just finished some singles that I will ply tomorrow.

Yesterday – Alpaca/Angora blend. You’ve never felt anything softer! 88yards, 2ply (I’ll be adding up Spinzilla yards later).

Fiber is from CobbleRock Ridge Farm, LLC (bought at The Fiber Festival of New England)

I just now finished spinning the singles of this and will ply tomorrow. 50/50 Yak/Silk blend. Also super soft and also very shiny.

Fiber is from Greenwood Fiberworks, colorway “Arcade” (bought at NY Sheep and Wool a.k.a Rhinebeck)

Tonight was my teams first spin in which is where I spun most of the second one up. This year, like usual, I am on Team Webs! I love have such an amazing store as my local yarn shop. The people there are super nice and there is an amazing selection of products. Our next team spin in is on Thursday, with a pj party on Saturday, then the final burst on Sunday. I can’t wait!

 

Spinzilla 2015 – Finished!

Like last year, this year I was on Team Webs. Last year we took 14th place and we are hoping to beat that this year, even though there are more teams. I know we can do it and I look forward to getting our results in. For me personally, I actually spun the same exact amount I did last year!

2.4 miles, 4,229 yards, and 1.8lbs of fiber. I spun merino (two Loop bumps) alpaca from two different sellers, and a first for me BFL/Silk. That one was a Three Feet of Sheep in a colorway exclusive to Webs. Everyone loved it so much that we’re hoping it becomes a regular at Webs. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed!
