Spinning My Little Fingers To The Bone


Not really.  But sort of.  It's been a stupid crazy week, but tomorrow's looking a little saner so hopefully I'll get a proper blog post up.  What little time I've had free so far I've tried to devote to spinning for Spinzilla since I'm on a team and don't want to let my team members down (and it's fun ;-).  

I'm spinning Baaxter and he's spinning like a dream.  Completely different from Crazy Maisie last year.  I'm hoping that means the Iknitarod will go much smoother this winter!  The plan is a black sweater with a gray patterned yoke.  I picked a combo blend of Annabelly and Emily for the gray. Very soft and pretty.  Emily didn't care when I told her, but I think Annabelly was pretty excited :-).

I have 250 yards of the gray spun and plied (which I think is 750 Spinzilla yards because you get to count the plying - two singles and one plying 250x3=750 until someone corrects me :-).  I have 14.8 ounces of Baby B spun but not plied yet.  I have until Sunday night.  

My goal is to have all my Iknitarod sweater yarn spun and also to break a mile - 1,760 yards. Surely I'm primed for that (she says thinking she hopes she hasn't jinxed something...).
