Last week I went away on vacation to Michigan, which involved a plane ride with a transfer and a car journey after that. The plane ride went completely awry - I was stuck in Philadelphia's airport for at least 10 hours all by my lonesome. So what did I do to pass the time? I spun.

I'm still a really new spinner (two weeks of spindle-owning), so that 10+ hours of off-and-on spinning resulted in only 16 yards of finished yarn. I'm extraordinarily happy with that small amount, though! There is another picture and a little more explanation on my journal.

That's really well done for only having spun for 2 weeks! And I llove those colors!! Sorry you had to be stuck in an airport while making it. Where'd you get that fiber?

I'm sorry about the airport nonsense too, but I figure that spinning was probably the least destructive thing I could have done to pass the time. Tongue The fiber is from the Hello Yarn shop, and I got my spindle from there as well.

Thanks for the compliments; it's hard to show this off to my non-knitting, non-fiberous family!
