Spinzilla is a week long competition to see which spinner can spin the most yardage of yarn. I found out about the event too late to join a team, so I signed up as a Rogue Spinner.
Day one started pretty strong with a bright burst of color.
Up and spinning at 5:45 am, nothing was going to slow me down. Sleep is overrated, spinning….not so much!The first skein was complete and I was feeling pretty accomplished. 102 yards under my belt for Spinzilla before 6:30 am.With a pretty large amount of Alpaca from the local Sweet Clover Alpaca farm in town, I figured my best bet would be to tackle this pile next. I grabbed a luscious bag of baby alpaca and let the fiber turn into the yarn it wanted to become. This cria had the softest, crimpist coat. Spun, the yarn almost looks like a boucle yarn. I’m in love. After this skein, I had another 89 yards finished! Yay!!!Knowing I had to get quite a few soaps felted, I had to make the most out of my last spin of the day. This one reminded me of a Christmas Peppermint.I needed lots and lots of yards, so I focus the Spinzilla Force and spun probably the lightest weight yarn that has come off my wheel in years.196 yards…folks for me and my normal super bulky yarn was an accomplishment. I really love the look of this one! Most likely after Spinzilla Week I’ll go back and thread ply it to make it even more fabulous. 😉Lots more spinning is ahead for the week!
