When I spin on my @akerworks Spindle Crane the spindle hangs off the crane and looks like a fun object to jump on for a spider. Had to tell Lucas that it wasn’t a good idea because then the spindle might stop spinning and it maybe even drop! Drop spindles are not bungee cords! #Akerworks #AkerworksMiniSpindle #Akerworksspindles #minispindle #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #woolgatherings #lucasthespider #jumpingspider #spidersofinstagram


Lucas the Spider closely examining the fineness of the strand spun on the mini spindle. #Akerworks #AkerworksMiniSpindle #Akerworksspindles #minispindle #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #woolgatherings #lucasthespider #jumpingspider #spidersofinstagram


Lucas the Spider helped me spin today. Jumping spiders may not spin silk for webs but they are very good at employing their silk as a dragline when they jump to act as a safety line. #Akerworks #AkerworksMiniSpindle #Akerworksspindles #minispindle #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #woolgatherings #lucasthespider #jumpingspider #spidersofinstagram


Here’s a good look at the storage of the @Akerworks Knitting Tool Kit once the Swatch Gauge is removed. There’s plenty of extra room for more notions. I’ve already added some more to mine including some colored stitch markers which look so fun viewed through the clear Swatch Gauge. 😄 #Akerworks #AkerworksKnittingToolKit #akerworksswatchgauge #swatchgauge #knittersofinstagram #igknitters #knittersofig #knitting #knitting_inspiration #instaknit #i_loveknitting


Here’s a closer view of the @akerworks Knitting Tool Kit. It’s so awesome how everything fits together. The design is absolute genius! Included in the full kit is an Akerworks Swatch Gauge, 2 built in large pockets with 2 needles, 10 stitch markers, two small empty pockets, scissors, tape measure, and a built in knitting needle gauge. The notions are magnetically held in place so they can’t fall out when the Swatch Gauge is removed. Absolutely love it! #Akerworks #AkerworksKnittingToolKit #akerworksswatchgauge #swatchgauge #knittersofinstagram #igknitters #knittersofig #knitting #knitting_inspiration #instaknit #i_loveknitting
