Spinzilla 2016!

It's that time of year again!  Spinzilla!

Ready for Spinzilla 2016!

This is my second year participating in Spinzilla, which is a contest/fundraiser where thousands of spinners around the world are joining together to see how much yarn we can spin in one week.  I'm on Team Knot Another Hat, which is sponsored by the yarn shop in Hood River.

I had so much fun last year.  It's such a connected feeling, to know that spinners all over the world are spinning enormous amounts of yarn all together.  And again, as last year, I donated some money to help sponsor the team from Bolivia, Team Clothroads Warmis Phuskadoras.  I don't even know those ladies, and I feel connected to them.

Last year, I spun 11,251 yards of finshed yarn, equaling 34,278 yards of Spinzilla spinning credit (length of singles plus length of plying) during the seven days.  My goal is to beat that this year.

I'm sorry. what did you say? I was distracted by all the pretty shiny new hues fiber i spied in that picture...

Oh right...of course you are going to beat what you did last year. If you didn't, then I know something is off in the universe. of course no pressure or anything. ;)

i miss my wheel. can you remind me of that when I get home so that I hit the ground running spinning? thank you.

If I had any inclination to join your team this year, I'd have backed out at the last minute... Not sure what's happening in my life, but it feels like I'm being hurtled through the universe at warp speed..... Spin well, and I'll be here cheering you and your team on!
