Cruisin’

I can’t give you official numbers yet, but our Spinzilla team continues to impress the heck out of me. It’s pretty amazing how much these gals can spin. The overwhelming sentiment is that we’ve all grown as spinners with the consistent practice that this week pushes us to perform.

I mean, just take a freaking look at that plying. Whew.

Full, full bobbins of fine yarn. That’s what’s happening over here with the electric, too:

Spinning while traveling has been fun, but also difficult to lug around…not because of the Firefly (although I should mention that itĀ is rather heavy), but because of the bulk of all the fiber I’ve brought with me!

Today’s challenge has been to find something we love about a color we typically don’t like or a fiber that we’ve been avoiding in our stash.

And tomorrow is Selfless Spinning Day! It’s all about giving tomorrow. Spin for someone you love!

On Sunday, we have an in-person meet-up at Handknits in Brattleboro from 12-4pm. Even if you aren’t on our Spinzilla team, you can still come and play, have snacks and spin with fiber friends!

*tap tap*…is this thing on?

Whoa!

It’s been a while. Summer was crazy-busy for all of us at Frabjous Fibers and Wonderland Yarns. Many of us were trying to juggle summer schedules with our kids, family visits, FUN, and other summery-ness all while keeping up on production and innovation in the studio.

Finding ourselves now in Autumn, kiddos back in school, and rolling swiftly on towards the holiday season, we’re piling our plates high with the good stuff. First off:

We have a Spinzilla team this year! It’s our first year hosting a team, and we still have room if you’d like to join in the fun! Check out the Spinzilla site for all the details and sign up by this Friday, October 2nd! Register under the Team Frabjous Fibers Mad Spinning Party to join us.

I ended up needing to schedule travel during most of Spinzilla week, and will be bringingĀ along a Spinolution Firefly to take my spinning on planes, trains, and automobiles from one coast to the other, adding yardage to our team totals as I go! More details on this wondrous machine when I pick her up in a week.

Check this thing out! It’s a perfect carry-on. I’ll be sharing adventures here and on our Facebook page daily during Spinzilla week and beyond, until the Firefly and I make it back home safe and sound, many yards (and possibly miles) later!

Our in-studio team members are starting to assemble fiber, and I’ll share our palettes with you over the next few days.

This Sunday, we’ll be joining Team MadWool for a kick-off party at Madison Wool in Madison, CT, and we’ve designed an exclusive colorway just for MadWoolers! Come and play from 12-5pm.

We’ve also created a special Lamb’s Tail for WEBS, who will also be hosting events during Spinzilla week.
