State Fair Spinning Bee!

Our State Fair Spinning Bee can you believe it, I took home 2nd prize for the most yardage spun in 45 minutes a Whooping 94 yards! Monica (blogless) took 1st for 98 yards

and not all 1st place on spindling for 15 minutes for the most yardage too. Didn't get the yardage on this but we tie onto a poll and walk backwards until yarn breaks to see who has the longest.. I haven't done much spindling in the past couple years let alone spindling in public either! It was alot of fun and I got a little better when the fiddler played fast too....at least the momento not the yarn....lol Monica took 2nd prize

my 6 y/o daughter Katie came with me this year and did some spindling, these are a couple photos the newpapers photographer took she emailed them to me this morning..That'd be me sitting behind her, you can see the heel of my birks with my prized socks...

she's so excited that she'll be in the papers. can wait for the edition to come put to pick up a few copies....

She won some fiber too for her attempt..I didn't register her to participate not yet... A couple years I think. She loves the Babe Wheels I'm thinking of getting her one within a couple years who knows maybe sooner. the Pinkie is cute

Wow, that is very cool.

My 7 yo comes & goes with the whole knitting thing. I don't know how she would do with spinning.

Looks great!
