I had a busy start to my day yesterday so I didn't make much progress on Day 1. I definitely made up for it today! I spun for a couple of hours and am almost half done with my first single. I am so pleased with how I am able to control the colors while spinning. The fiber I'm working with is soft and real easy to spin. I'm staying consistent and the yarn is pretty thin. I am hoping by the end of this I will have enough to make a shawl. The only issue I am finding is the black dye keeps rubbing off onto my fingers. At first I thought it was from the heat and my hands since I was spinning outside at the time. Later, after being in the central air and my hands were no longer sweaty, it was still staining them. Now the dye from my fingers is staining the shaft of my spindle. I just hope that most of the color stays after it's bath.

Today I actually did some chores around the house and ran a few errands so I only spun for about an hour. I am aiming to finish up the braid tomorrow and hopefully ply it up on Tuesday. Keep spinning everyone!
