Inglenook Fibers 2021 12 Days of Christmas Spin-a-long

I am late to the party on the 12 Days of Christmas Spin-a-long from Inglenook Fibers. There has been and continues to be too much going on in my life to even think about spinning.  I was to start spinning the first packet on Christmas Day, hasn't happened, not sure when I'll get started on this project. 

The label shows the photo that was the inspiration for this years spinning fibers. I have now opened all the packets and took these pictures.  At the end of the 12 packets are two companion braids I bought to either use for plying or as companion spinning. I didn't know what direction I wanted to go so I bought two different colors. Maybe it's a good thing I haven't had time to even think about spinning because I have no clue what direction I want to go in, do I want to spin these continuous like I've done in the past going from one color to another, or do I want to spin them individually either plied on themselves or plied with a companion fiber.   I'm at a loss this year so they will sit in a basket until I'm ready.  I may end up deciding on a project first this time. So for the time being these fibers will be eye candy for when I need an emotional lift. 



  1. Those are gorgeous, Cindie! I definitely need to spin some of my fiber stash. I've just been unmotivated to weave, spin, or knit. Just knit a bit & sewed some for grandkids for Christmas, but everything else just sits. It's debilitating living thru Covid times & in this political environment. I keep thinking something will change--that one of these awful things will be *the* thing that will end his influence, but it just goes on. I have one of your inkles looking me in the eye in my glass front cabinet, so think of you fairly often, even tho we haven't met. Hang in there, & enjoy all that beauty! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I was hoping that you would do the 12 days spinning again this year! The colors are lovely, and I feel happier just looking at them, so hopefully patting them gives you a moment of cheer. I'm so sorry things are so hectic and stressful for you now.

  3. I have not gotten even that far. Looking forward to what you will do with yours!

  4. Sending continued wishes for health and peace to you.
