Spinzilla is coming up. It’s the first of its kind spinning event. From October 7th to 13th it is “a community wide event where competing teams challenge each other to see who can spin the most yarn in a one-week period.”
What does this mean for me? Well, I joined a team – pretty respectable team of amazing spinners, the Sweet Georgia Yarns team, and I don’t want to let them down. I work full-time so will have to cram in my spinning time in the morning and after work – combined with spindle spinning over the lunch hour.
So this last while I’ve been getting ready.
Getting ready for Spinzilla, a full week of full on spinning, means that:
- you have to have empty bobbins for all the spun yarn
- a great deal of easy-to-spin fibre at hand
- no decisions to make.
