Spinzilla is over! It was a busy week, but I did manage to find some spinning time.
Day 1-Leicester Longwool, I could not get the tension right- I dealt with overspun singles..I finally gave up after one skein of 2 ply, and left the other two bobbins single ply.
Mike looked the wheel over and made some adjustments. It helped but it still not spinning as well as it should.
This was a white Border Leicester Fleece that was dyed a Cranberry. I love the color and spun up what I had.
I did manage to get a few hours of spinning in on the last day-Some natural colored Blue Faced Leicester. I love the way BFL spins- I need a few more of these sheep on the farm :)
I had some odds and ends on the bobbins left over after plying. I decided to make a three ply and plan on using them for mug hugs, and other small projects.
I finished with 1, 912 yards- compared to last year's 3,204 it is apparent, I didn't get as much spinning time in ...but it was still down time, that I appreciated.
