Normally, I don't get much chance to spin at home. I will spin on Wednesdays, at the spinning group that I attend. 
 I joined the Tour De Fleece 2011 on Ravelry. You are to make a challenge for yourself, to spin during the actual bicycle competition in France. Well, my challenge is to spin 20 minutes a day.  That may not seem like much, but it is enough.  :)  So far, I have been able to finish a skein of yarn, by plying it. I had it spun as a single, but needed to ply it, so I can knit with it.  It is now done. 

The fiber is a blend of Jacob Sheep and Alpaca. It is a pretty soft yarn.  I have 320 yards from 4 oz. I believe it to be about a DK weight, but haven't done the Wraps Per Inch yet.
