Spinzilla is almost here! In just one week, I'll be spinning with my excellent teammates on Team Louet North America. This is my third time spinning with Team Louet (and also serving as the team captain), and I think we are definitely in contention for unseating Team Fancy Tiger Craft for first place.
Louet Blending board. Part of this is because the blending board is just so incredibly fun & addicting to use - but the other part is because I am going to be traveling for the second half of the event, and I want to make sure that I have plenty of fiber that is easy to use while on-the-go. Small, portable rolags seem tailor-made for travel spinning!
This year, I am going to take a totally different approach to my Spinzilla spinning: I don't plan on plying ANY of my projects til after the event. I have plied in years past, and I just want to try something new, especially since I don't see myself plying while traveling. Of course, that poses some challenges: first, I only have so many bobbins for each wheel. Second, I'll need a way to measure the yardage of my singles which doesn't involve using my niddy noddy (winding my singles off on a niddy noddy will add another step later down the road, because I will have to transfer the singles back onto a bobbin to ply).
Louet Victoria wheel with me, along with my 3-D printed Turkish spindle from Turtlemade. Here's hoping I'm able to keep up with everyone else on my team, we've got some pretty prolific spinners amongst us!
