Phew, what a Tour! Here’s how things went:
Cinnamon Cotton Wheel Spin: I got A LOT farther on my wheel spin than I thought I would. I figured I’d maybe finish one bobbin/single, but I got two done and started a third. I also spun on this every day and worked my way up to 50 minutes a day.
White Cotton Supported Spin: Fell behind on this spin, so didn’t get it finished. I did finish up the 4th spindle after I took this photo, which leaves me with one spindle and about 3 days worth of spinning left on this project (not including plying).
Cotton Gradient Spin: I pretty much hit my target on this and finished the 6th single. I started the 7th during the tour but didn’t get more than a few meters spun.
Itty Bitty Spin: I finished this one a lot faster than I thought I would and had it done by the middle of the tour.
Bonus Spins: In addition to the four spins above, I also completed the challenge day Re-Spin Spin, and spun up a sample of fiber that came with my new spindle.
Overall it was a pretty successful tour. I only “missed” my goal on one of my spins, but far overshot my mark on another spin and completed some extra spins so I think it all evens out. I’m hoping to keep up the momentum I build during the tour and finish up the Cotton Gradient Spin and the third single on the Cinnamon Cotton Wheel Spin by the end of this coming week. Then I’ll be ready to ply a bunch of yarn. I also have a few spin-a-longs I plan on participating in in August.
