More results from Spinzilla are in

30 miles. That’s how many yards of yarn were spun by the Spinzilla participants on the Paradise Fiber team. That’s 158,400 feet – six miles longer than the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in Louisiana, which is 126,122 feet. In other words, if our yarn string was a bridge it would be very, very long. 20140722_122045_20227

The winning team, Team Louet, spun 296,849 yards, which is roughly the equivalent of 5,566 football fields spread across end to end. That’s about 142 miles. Wow!

Each of the participants on Team Louet won a $25 gift certificate and they have claim to the Golden Niddy Noddy. I didn’t know there was such a thing, but here it is:


I’ll be darned. Anyway, Team Louet won the Golden Niddy Noddy last year as well. Those who spun a Monster Mile were entered into a drawing for a $25 gift certificate. Then, as luck would have it, random participants were also entered into a drawing for a $25 gift certificate. And guess who won one?

That’s right! Me! My gift certificate was for Treenway Silks. Notice the word “was” because it’s already gone! I don’t waste much time with fiber.

The total number of yards spun during Spinzilla was a whopping

5,507,622 yards!

That is a lot of yarn, folks. I mean we’re talking 3,129 miles! That’s roughly the distance from New York City to Scotland.

So onto another year of spinning practice. Next year, I am going for that Monster Mile or more! You should join us.
