Spinzilla 2015 Update!
Well I did it, I managed to spin 7,008 yards for Spinzilla 2015! I didn't manage to do a daily update as promised however but I did post images on Instagram so you may have seen some of the yarn I spun. Here's a pic of all the yarn below.
I am just washing the cream yarn which is 100% Corriedale which is for a jumper for my husband. I am also busy plying up some of the singles as well. The grey yarn in the pic is Herdwick which I'm intending to use in some homeware ideas. Boy was that a hairy yarn to spin with! I managed to spin about half the rolags I prepared and some of the natural wool tops so I have a mountain of fibre left to spin! I certainly learnt a lot and feel my spinning has only got better. It was a great experience despite my back going into spasm day two in which I spent one day lying down using my drop spindle! I will definitely be participating next year. You can see how much yarn was spun by everyone on the Spinzilla Website it was an amazing amount of yarn! 5,246,497 yards in total!
