Today started the race and I started my spinning.
This is my 3rd year as a participant. Each year before, my goal has been to spin a certain amount of time each day. This year I decided to tackle something different.
My goal: To spin up the 2.5 lbs of a lt. grey Shetland fleece that I purchased in 2010.
That is 40 ounces in 23 days with two days off for rest. That means I need to spin at least 2 ounces a day and ply as I can to clear bobbins.
Today got off to a bad start, as I had not cleared my bobbins. I need to ply up almost 500 yards of a polwarth/silk I had on the wheel before I could even start. Yeah- nothing like procrastination huh.
Once that was plied and set to soak, I started my testing for two ply or three ply in the Shetland.
Results: I like the two ply.
I have spun up 1 ounce and calling it quits for today.
That means I need to spin 3 ounces tomorrow.
