Attention all Spin Along members! We are doing a Virtual Spin-in beginning May 18, 2012 at 12 noon your local time until May 20, 2012 12 midnight your local time.
During this Spin-in, we are going to have a spinning swap. It is not required to participate in the swap in order to participate in the Spin-in. If you wish to participate in the swap, please send me a Personal Message with your mailing address. DO NOT POST ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION HERE. KP IS VERY GOOD ABOUT KEEPING OUR PRIVATE INFORMATION PRIVATE. Every time we have a new member I have sent you a friend request. So if you have accepted my friend invitation, you can PM me with no problems. If you haven't accepted my friend invitation, just go to your friends list in the upper right hand side of the page and then click on Requests. Just accept my request and we should be good to go to send PMs to each other. IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SWAY, WHOEVER YOU ARE MATCHED WITH WILL BE GIVEN YOUR MAILING ADDRESS. The swap will be for one skein of your handspun yarn. It does not have to be the yarn you spin during the Spin-in. And if you wish to send your swap partner anything else, that is up to you but not necessary. Please note that any international members are welcome to participate so there could be international shipping charges which you could incur. IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SWAP, PLEASE SEND ME A PM BY MAY 12th SO I CAN MATCH PEOPLE UP FOR THE SWAP. Everyone who participates name will go into a hat. I will make a list of those participating, listing people as they send me a PM. I will draw names and list them to those participating in the order you notified me. This way it maybe that you have to send a skein of your homespun from someone different you receive a skein from. That way, I don't have to worry about an odd number of people participating.
I suggest if you participate in the Spin-in, let us know what you plan to spin and on what kind of wheel or spindle, how much you plan to spin, any new technique or new fiber you plan to use. This is not a contest and there will be no prizes. This is just a way to encourage you to keep a record for yourself.
Any questions? Post them here. Remember, the only stupid question is the one not asked. And remember, this is for fun and to help you improve your spinning skills. You set your own goals and no harm if you don't meet your own goals.
Whoooooeeeee! That's a bright one! Do you have plans for the finished yarn? I'm curious what you'll make with this....
I'm spinning this up to use in the Mary Scott Huff KAL on Ravelry of her Dogwood Socks. It starts June 1st. Come join us, everyone!
That is just gorgeous! I'd be chomping if I were you too!
nice photo Jo! can't wait to see it spun up!
Nice, Susan! Someone will be very lucky, but I'll never tell you who! Too bad it's not me!
you're so fast! it's lovely Susan! i'm still trying to free up my wheel for tomorrow. oh, so little TIME!
Not really, I had to try out my faster flyer in preparation for the cotton... can't wait to try that. I finished the dyeing, it dried in about 3 hours... it is all packaged (with a little goodie sample), addressed and ready for DH to take it to the PO in the morning, before I even start spinning.
And yes, Cheryl YOU would love the package I've put together.
This is so pretty! Love the colors and I bet it is rub on your cheek soft.
Thanks Dawn, it's at least that soft.
Pretty! It will sure be good to know who gets this lovely skein!
I'm like Cheryl... I'm NOT tellin'... but my DH just dropped it at the PO, so it's on the way. I love surprises.
