This year, we had a lot of familiar faces from previous years, plus some new-to-us spinners. Everyone was super excited for the event, and our team thread on Ravelry was filled with lots of chatter - sharing fiber prep tips, updating everyone on their spinning progress during the week of Spinzilla, and cheering one another on. It's such a great group of people, I feel lucky to be their captain.
For the first time ever, we had 100% participation from all 25 spinners (in previous years, there has always been one or two who drop off and forget to send in their yardage, despite my persistent harassment!). Just look at all of these beautiful handspun singles and skeins:
You might be wondering how this year's total yardage compares to that of years past - but fear not! I have been keeping careful track of that data and have created this handy dandy chart:
I firmly believe that every contribution matters, and there is no yardage too small when it comes to claiming the Golden Niddy Noddy. However, each year, I am blown away by the accomplishments of our top 3 spinners...and of course, I made a chart to prove it:
I look forward to another year of spinning with this team next year!
