Challenge: Spin the Bin

Spin the Bin 2015

I haven’t touched my spinning wheels (except to dust) since November 2, 2014.  Not a long time, you say – but for one who typically spins 3 – 4 hours a day, it’s been a VERY long time.  Not to say I’ve been “fiber idle” for two months, but my wheels have been neglected terribly.

Fortunately, I’ve found a challenge that will restore my spinning mojo.  Spin the Bin Challenge 2015 is a Ravelry event sponsored by the group calling themselves ‘completely twisted and arbitrary’ .

Moderated by KaleidoscopeKim (everyone has a screen name on Ravelry), the challenge is pretty basic –

  • Create a bin of 12 fibers from your stash that you commit to spinning during 2015.  Each chosen fiber must weigh 2 ounces or more.
  • Make a list of the contents of your bin.
  • * Spin, photo, post *  REPEAT

I’ll be posting updates here on the blog from time to time and on Ravelry as well.  I’m guessing that at least half of you have stashes of fiber to spin.  It’s going to be fun – so why not join in?
