In other January news, our regional spin retreat met at Lindenwood the final weekend of January. I brought a challenge project: 3.4 pounds of llama/merino fiber I had processed last summer.
Admittedly, I was intimidated by the amount of fiber, and wondered if and when I could ever get through it. Spin retreat was a great place to try, but it was so hard! There were so many distractions with lovely braids and bumps of yummy fiber. After my first bobbin was filled, I longed to spin anything else.
By the time I left, I had two bobbins completely filled and had started in on another. By the end of the week, I had four filled and started plying during the Super Bowl.
I now have four skeins of approximately 600 yards triple plied, AND I'm really happy with it!
