What fun I had SPINNING in this first time event
This event took place during the week of October 6 2019 and ended at midnight on the 12 October 2019. The above picture is what I spun during the event. I didn't spin as much as I would have liked, but I did reach my personal goal of a mile or more. We calculate our totals by the actual yardage of the finished yarn, then multiply by the number of plies and add 1 (for the actual plying). My yarns are all 2 ply yarns, so I added my totals and multiplied by 3 for a total of 1,818 yards. I spun with my online team named Twisted Spinners. As a team we spun 99.436 yards which is 56.5 miles total! This is submitted to the organizers and they are awarding prizes for different categories. Another "category" was spinning a wild crazy art yarn and a pretty yarn. I did spin an art yarn for this event on my Spinolution Echo Wheel. below. It was spun from an alpaca & sari silk art batt that I created on my Baby Brother Drum Carder. I spun the red mulberry silk to ply the thick-n-thin yarn with.

Hi, my name is Liz Fagel and I love to blog about our ranch located in beautiful Northern Michigan. I write about the alpaca's and of course the fiber arts.
