#spin15adayseptember Challenge

In some places fall is no where near and in others, like the PNW, it’s just around the corner!

I’m throwing you a challenge. Yes, YOU!

Mission Impossible?


Here’s what you need to do:

•Go grab about 3 oz of fiber to spin up into a worsted weight yarn (about 75 yards) during the month of September and then:

•Use the fantastic yarn you made to knit up a pair of 75-yard Mmmalabrigo Fingerless Mitts,  (Note: added Simple Crochet Handwarmers by Jennifer Edwards; needs about 180 yards so you maybe need to stash dive for about 4 – 5 oz of fiber to spin) completed by:

•September 30, 2019. You have 3 1/2 weeks to take on this challenge. It’s doable, trust me, as I know some of you could knock it out in a weekend. So, what do you get:

•A pair of handspun, handknit fingerless mitts to throw into the pockets of your favorite fall coat or:

•You can wrap them up all pretty like and gift to a friend during the holidays (paired with a book and chocolate, you just can’t go wrong with a gift like this).

•So, are you still with me? If you complete this challenge by September 30, 2019, create a post on Instagram showing the beginning fiber, the yarn and then the finished mitts (either in a single layout photo post or several pics to slide through on one post), I’ll throw your name into a drawing for a braid of fall colorways dyed fiber. Use #spin15adayseptember on your post.

•You win either way!

•Head over to my post of this challenge on Instagram and let us know if you accept this challenge!

    There will be items available for each of the events as a la carte; moving back to the cute button pins for a better cost savings for participating spinners (the enamel pins are pretty expensive to order) and still offering up some dyed fiber braids in the event colorways I create.  Stashdown is still encouraged, hence why pins will be offered!
  • Stay tuned…

#spin15adaycamp September 21, 2019

Join in on a creative day of fiber at #spin15adaycamp. This will be the last scheduled day for 2019.

If you are in the Washington State area and within driving range, join us for a day of making batts, rolags, top and dying roving.

Camp is from 10am – 3pm-ish, includes materials, a light lunch, beverages and dessert.

Camp is not an instructional workshop, but a place to create and spend time with other like-minded fiber folks. The bonus is you get to create/take home one of a kind fibers to spin.

Isn’t that what #spin15aday is about, spinning! Well, here’s where you can take it to the next level by being your own fiber designer.

See you at camp!!!
