no spinning today … I didn’t even watch much Tour de France - just a couple of minutes and then looked at the results in the app …

A few pics of finished yarns. My three week totals are:
Minutes: 2,823
Yards: 1603
Grams singles: 1,012
I will probably do two more days and call it done. I want to finish the other half of the pink/blue Merino sock base I started on Day 1!
