Notes

A challenge to spin a little, every day, during 2014. My goal: 1 oz minimum per day (1/2 oz if spinning fine yarns) or ply a skein. The top picture is a placeholder, the second uppermost pic will be the latest one.

Though my posting was sidelined by eye surgery and enforced no-reading recovery, I still continued to spin every day except for one week, which I am declaring a “rest week”. :) Rather than document each day’s spinning during that time, I took a picture of the end result, posted 7/6/14 - 104 oz total, or 6.5 pounds.
