And raise your hand if you like spinning wool?
Now raise your hand if you are a fan of a good, old fashion SAL (Spin-a-Long)???
I’m sure many of you have your hand up if not for all of these, at least for one of these. I have started my very first SAL over at Woolyhands. This Halloween themed spin-a-long will feature some goolishly fun batts in a mix of fibers with some spooky add ins for those who love to spin art yarns. I’ve had so much fun carding up some various batts and I can’t wait to send them out to the participants at the end of this month.
If you’ve never participated in an SAL, now is your chance. Don’t know what an SAL is? Well, you’re in luck because I’ll let you in on the secret. SALs (or spin-a-longs) are just a chance for a bunch of spinners to all spin either the same batt or a selection of themed batts (which mine will be) into yarn and show them off in a forum of some sort. The fun part about mine is that everyone who posts a finished yarn over at my Flickr group will be entered into a drawing for some surprise spinning fibers. This couldn’t be more fun!
I’ve been wanting to do this for a few months. I participated in an SAL over the summer and absolutely had a blast. Now that I’ve had a bit of time to devote to my piles of wool, I decided it was time to host this. I just can’t wait to see what people spin up with their Woolyhands Halloween Spin-a-Long Batts!
