Exploring the world of fiber, one draft at a time

My posting can be as frequent or infrequent as my spinning, so be as patient as that fiber, sitting in my stash.

My personal olympic challenge

I have been reading many comments about the knitting olympics, with knitters gearing up to start and finish a major project during the olympics. I just could not get into the spirit of that challenge, and have come up with my own personal goal, a spinning olympics.

I have been so immersed in knitting projects over the last year, and my spinning wheel has lanquished in the corner. I realized I was going to have to make it a bigger part of my life, if I ever intend to spin the mountain of fiber I have in my spare room.

So it's a spinning olympic challenge for me. I plan to only spin while watching any olympics on TV (no knitting) and plan to keep track of how much I yarn I produce during the olympics. I have so much roving ready, I should not even have to spend any of the time in fiber prep. I am truly curious how much yarn I will spin given this space of time.

I'll be sure to post the end totals, sometime in March.

This is something I can get into. I can spin and watch the Olympics. How anyone can knit a challenging project and cheer for the Olympics beats me.

I was thinking that I should have picked a similar goal for my Olympic challenge. It will be fun to see how much fibre you can go through in 16 days. :D
