Sunday's are for Spinning

Well, at least this one was. I have been doing pretty well with my participation of the Tour de Fleece. I have spun yesterday and today. My goal is to finish the spinning project I am working on and then spin 8 more ounces of fiber. I am hoping to get sock yarn out of all three of them. Yesterday, I finished the second bobbin and started the third. Today, I finished the third bobbin. I am spinning this into six bobbins total since I split the fiber in half and then split the halves into thirds. I should end up with two skeins that I can use to make a pair of socks.

On a totally non spinning or knitting note does anyone know why my photos get turned the wrong way sometimes??? I didn't mean for this photo to be vertical like it is, it was supposed to be horizontal.

Very impressive!!! You'll be finished way before the end of the race!

i have no clue with blogger, it was way to complicated for me and that's why I use wordpress. Granted blogger seemed complicated to me because there was reading involved ;)
However, your bobbins look beautiful! Love that bright color.

It makes me want to try spinning. Actually a nearby blogger ordered a new spinning wheel, and said I could come to her place to try it. Can't wait. Now to figure out where to find the time if it turns out I like it.
