Spinzilla Recap + Sweater Knitting Show

It's been a week since Spinzilla wound down (last Sunday night, October 13 at midnight EST, to be exact). Since then, each team has calculated and submitted their yardage for a grand total of nearly 1.4 million yards of yarn! For those of you who were wondering, the exact number for all participating teams was 1,373,175.06 yards.

I'm proud to say that my team (Team Louet) was in the top five with a grand total of 63,964 yards. For my contribution, I spun through every bit of fiber I'd set aside for the event (but don't worry, my fiber stash isn't totally depleted) for a total of 2,390 yards. Before you're too impressed with that number, I should mention that one of my teammate spun over 11,000 yards (over eight pounds of fiber) during Spinzilla! Not only that, the winning team was Team FancyTiger; they earned the golden niddy noddy by spinning a whopping 94,939.73 yards total!

All in all, it was a really great event that I look forward to doing again next year.
In other news, I am excited to be a live guest on tomorrow's Sweater Knitting Show, which is a daily event each week this month during the 30 Day Sweater Challenge KAL. We should be broadcasting at 12:30 CST on Tuesday, October 22, click here to join us!

Edited to update w/correct date for my Sweater Knitting Show appearance (I had the wrong date written down)!
