Wow!!

Wow!!!

Wow!!!!!!

What a fun experience!  22 days of consistent spinning what a joy and  visual delight.  If you remember my goals were:

Keep a consistent drafting triangle-so I can get consistent yarn

No pig tails-control the wheel so it doesn’t turn backward on me

Wind the yarn even on the bobbin-I get so excited and forget(blush)

Spin 4 oz with a Z twist-hopefully this will make plying easier I feel like frankenstein  when plying,LOL

Spin a new to me fiber/mix

Continue to practice 30 mins a day

Goal Breakdown:

Keep a consistent drafting triangle-so I can get consistent yarn-Got it.  This was the most consistent spinning ever but I only expected so since  I was really focused during the tour.  Such a great motivator.

No pig tails-control the wheel so it doesn’t turn backward on me-Nailed it!

Wind the yarn even on the bobbin-I get so excited and forget(blush)-Nailed it

Spin 4 oz with a Z twist-hopefully this will make plying easier I feel like frankenstein  when plying,LOL Missed this one!!!! Since the Pirformis Syndrome Diagnosis I simply can not do it.  But I am not defeated my plying as has improved greatly.  Yay!

Spin a new to me fiber/mix-Nailed it I spun Falkland and a BFL/Silk Mix

Continue to practice 30 mins a day-Nailed it

I have my BFL/Silk on the wheel now but the Tour is complete. I really enjoyed participating and I can definitely say I have  improved.  I used different fibers and enjoyed plying my finished work.  It was great to look at all the progress being made on the Rookie board and and the other boards as well.  Bottom Line..would I do it again…….Oh Yea!!!

 

Happy Spinning!
