I had so much fun with my Completely Twisted & Arbitrary spin-along last year that I decided on a much larger spin-along for this year. The challenge is to name twelve items in your fiber stash (one for each month) and spin them by the end of the year. These are the photos from my declaration post where we all show our fiber (I'm not spinning Lydia, though...) and the bin that we use to store it (or Very Sophisticated Paper Sack, if you prefer).
To be honest, I'm not entirely sure that I'll actually finish my bin according to the rules, but I love the drive to spin more often. It's something I really enjoy but don't always find the time to do. Having a clear challenge with an end goal in mind helps keep me on task.
Even if I don't finish, I've already spun more than I did by this time last year. Above, you can see me (well, my right leg, anyways) spinning on New Year's Day with a couple of helpers, and I've already finished one yarn and have made good progress on a second.
Have you set any fun and creative challenges for yourself this year?
