I've made good progress on my Tour de Fleece efforts, in spite of taking my two rest days at the very beginning of the race. I've managed to put in a little time at the mini-spinner every day since and have spun 2 lbs. 7 oz. of singles, which I'm in the process of plying. The Hansen Mini-spinner has a huge bobbin, which I love. Combine the size of the bobbin with the Woolly Winder and you can really pack some fiber on there. The first plied bobbin was 314 yards of worsted weight and I have enough singles spun to have about 1000 yards of two-ply yarn. I'm now thinking I might like a cardigan, rather than a vest, and I'll most likely spin another bobbin full. So, it looks as though I'll make it across the finish line. I'm not sure I deserve a medal this year, even though I met my goal. It doesn't feel like I've been dedicated enough, especially when I see the efforts and discipline this spinner and this one are putting into the race.
