So here's what I've gotten done so far.

One finished single:


And a single I'm working on:


They both are the exact same fiber, just prepared in different ways. The first is a little over 2 oz spun from rolags.

The bottom is spun from top blended on a hackle and then dizzed off.

day 1!
 did anyone else get their spinning done?  I got about 7oz spun. I don't know yardage yet, as I'm going to not waste time figuring that out just yet! Must keep spinning!

I feel like I'm in the same boat, Mel! though I'm feeling pretty pumped about finishing the green yarn.

I'm diving into the hot chocolate batts I blended up last winter. They just can't languish any longer! Wink That'll happen tomorrow. Hopefully I can get all 6 batts done by friday night...

my hot chocolate batts are so squishy! I love them spun up Cheesy  This is 4+ ounces of woollen squishiness so far. And I'm working on another 2+ today. It'll be 6 ounces of 2 ply.

Awe! Don't feel that way! There are other life things that have to happen (like laundry and kid chasing and everything else) that get in the way.  I stayed up way past my bed time to spin, and am paying for it in other ways.

Yesterdays efforts are pretty amazing tho.. But I didn't have to leave the house.  I think that helped.

I finished the previous single and then spun up this single after the kids had gone to bed. It is around 3 oz I think.

Yay yarn! well done Mel!

I got distracted at the end there!  This is my final picture, minus the green yarn, it went to a new home before i remembered I needed a picture.

ETA: My final yardage spun (including ply tally) was 2648 yards!
