There was talk of doing another Virtual Spin-In like we did last March.  We decided to do it in February this year.  Let's see how much we spin this year compared to last year!  :)

I thought we would use the same guidelines we used last year.  I have included them below:

TIME OF SPIN IN: 12  Noon on Friday, February 10th until 12 Noon on Monday, February 13th.

Each person should use these times within their own time zone!  (For example: That means if you live in NY, spin from 12 Noon Friday EST to 12 Noon Monday EST.)

Each spinner should make sure to alot a full 72 hours of time!  That means if you have a time change during this event, please adjust accordingly!

 

1) First and foremost - Lets Have Fun!!

2) Post here in this thread, or PM me (Knittergirl39) with your:  Name - Time zone - Whether you will be using wheel or spindle.

3) Keep track of: Weight of the fiber before and after spinning (if possible) - Number of yards spun - Size of yarn spun (approximately!).

4) When you are finished post your results here by 12 Noon (your own time) on WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15th.

5) If you can tell us how many hours you actually spent spinning, that would be great!!

 

PLEASE: If you aren't able to record all the 'measurements', especially the weight, don't feel that excludes you.  It's just a 'trivia' thing and we would much rather have people join in the spinning than worry about not being able to measure how much they are doing.  If you can at least measure yardage, we'll have a good enough idea from that.

 

Please, Come join us!

And to any and all who do - Welcome!!

We're both lacking in self-control. Better get back to knitting!

ROFL!!  So I can't salute! =)

But DH's cardi is calling! =)

I'm just glad this discussion didn't go any further!

You know... Wonder Woman had "pointers" before Madona did - but I think the Pencil Sharpener would make them even more pointier, no?

Oh my goodness, how I have missed you ladies!  lol

Glad you're back!  And that it wasn't such a shock it chased you away again! =)

Nope, but it sure was a good laugh!  I can always do with one of those :o)

And thanks!

Nutty, is this a book or a small plastic chart? 

It's a small plastic foldout chart.  I totally spaced that I had one until Nutty mentioned it.  What's worse is that it's in the case with my knitting needles so I see it all the time.  Duh.

ROFL!!  You aren't the only one who's had problems seeing something that's right in front of your eyes!

Geesh, now that you describe it, I think I may have one of those "somewhere"... right now I have NO idea where... how did I forget about that?

I'm literaly LOL!!  Who knew my mentioning one little, granted very handy, reference item would have so many slapping their heads saying, "I have that! Wonder where it is?!"
