Spin the Bin

I participated in a spinning challenge in a Ravelry group (Completely Twisted and Arbitrary Spinning) called Spin the Bin. The challenge was to get together 24oz (680g) or more of fibre in a bin, and spin it within the year.

This was my starting fibre - 1.32kg (46.6oz),

and the finished yarn.

Ended up with 1.28kg (45.2oz), 2,788m (3,049yds) of yarn. It is also almost 9km (over 5 miles) of spinning - singles and plying lengths added together (some of the yarn is two ply and some three ply).
Most of the yarn was spun during Tour de Fleece (another spinning challenge).

Those yarns are beautiful. Will you be weaving them? Embroidering? You do such wonderful projects. And your yard is amazing too. It looks like you have a huge yard.
