The Spinzilla rules seem to imply that washing/finishing isn't necessary for counting yardage, so I'm going strictly by the number of wraps on my niddy noddy for this one. I ended up with 847 yards of plied yarn, so with plying credit, my total Spinzilla yardage for this skein is 2,541 yards.
I didn't think I'd get through another 4 oz. of this fiber just today, but I didn't want to waste the spinning time I had this afternoon, so I pulled out the batt I made at the fiber collective a couple of weeks ago and did a quick and dirty spin:
|Flash required because it was just finished at 9 p.m.!|
This little skein is 139 yards, for 417 yards of Spinzilla credit.
Finally, I never showed you the skein I finished plying up last weekend when I was clearing off my bobbins. This is the second half of the 8 oz. of Crown Mountain Farms Corriedale in Silk Road. I spun it exactly the same as the first half and ended up with almost exactly the same amount of yarn -- 519 yards of chain-plied fingering weight (as compared to 525 in the first skein):
Just to prove that there are in fact two, here are both together:
I think I did Spinzilla right this year. I didn't overdo it, and I got yarn spun in a short period of time that probably would have taken me a long time to finish had I hadn't been focusing on spinning so much. I think I'll try to finish the rest of the blended merino in the next couple of weeks, but I will admit that I'm eager to get back to my knitting. It's gotten noticeably more fall-like in the past week or so, and Rainbow's going to need her school sweater. And I think it's probably time to start thinking about holiday knitting!
