I don’t want to bore the knitters on my mostly knitting blog. But y’all understand about a little fiber acquisition. I didn’t go to MDSW this year, and didn’t need to, as the fiber has been coming directly to the house.
Can a more experienced spinner please tell me how to find the time to spin all this?

I have found time to spin the first half of Anne’s BFL in the Pussy Willows colorway that is hoping to become a lightweight 2-ply for some fingerless mitts for the husband. I had about 3 ¾ oz remaining after experimenting with spinning and plying 2 or 3-ply.
Waiting to become a 2-ply
And now that my extra bobbins have arrived, I set that aside and spun up the rest of the Kid Hollow BFL/mohair into a single that shows off all the slubs and nubs and bits of fiber blended in.
Along with the little sister skein, I now have about 350 yds of 14wpi DK wt singles.
So much softer in person than I can show you in a photo!
Oh, I also got a tensioned lazy kate which should help my plying efforts considerably.
