My spinning time yesterday was limited but for a good reason. I completely redesigned my blog layout and several behind the scenes settings. I also redesigned our fundraiser shop (link is over in the sidebar) and will be adding products and images this week. Here is my progress from day 1. Almost a full down… Continue reading TdF day 2
My plan for TdF is to spin every day in July, covering both the men's and women's dates. Other than that, I don't have any concrete plans.

Spun on my SpinEKube since the bobbins are bigger. The singles came out to be about a fingering weight, which is… Continue reading When fiber spins itself
