Regarding the Tour de Fleece photos: this is actually the spinning from day 1; I prefer to take the photos the day afterwards. Usually the light is better. Yesterday I spun about an hour and a half, enough to fill most of a bobbin. Today I spun more than 2 hours and filled this one plus one more, and may do a little more before bed. I forgot to mention my equipment for the Tour yesterday: it's an Ashford Traveller double drive.
