OMG: We Won!

Today's a special blog post, just so I can do a bit of bragging: my Spinzilla team won the Golden Niddy Noddy! I couldn't be more proud of Team Louet North America. What a tremendous group of spinners!

To reblog from our team sponsor's post announcing our team's stats:
  • 24 of 25 registered spinners reported yardage & will be receiving our Team Thank-you gift valued at $100! We’ll be creating a special fiber pack for our hard-working spinners which includes two 1/2 lb. bags of Merino Silk, a 1/2 lb. bag of Dyed Merino and a Lavishea Spinzilla lotion bar!
  • 21 of 25 registered spinners are in the Monster Mile Club! This means that they will receive an additional gift from us (their choice of in-stock fibers valued at $100)!
  • Eight of our spinners reported 5-digit yardage!
  • As a team, we spun a total of 271,607 yards – that’s just over 154 miles, or the equivalent of 5.8 marathons!
We’ve far surpassed our team total from last year (156,853) as well as the winning team total of 171,493, and we couldn’t have done it without each and every one of our fantastic spinners. We’d like to give an extra-special mention to our top 3 spinners who reported the most yardage for our team at the close of Spinzilla:
  • Tracy Hammond: 48,028 yards
  • Monica Bittner: 40,765 yards
  • Alexis Borsboom: 31,158 yards
I mean REALLY. Holy cow. The output of not just our team, but everyone who competed this year is just jaw-dropping. I am already counting down the days til Spinzilla 2016 - and I plan to take some time off for next year's event so that I can really up my ante and break 5k, which has always been my secret Spinzilla goal. Being at the very low end of the spectrum, yardage-wise, on my team has definitely inspired me to set more challenging goals for next year's event! See you then!
