SQUEEE!!!! I got another braid of this gorgeous Targhee from @spottedewefibers to spin up. This colorway and fiber make my heart sing. It’s an absolute delight. 💚💙💚 Fiber is Targhee in the colorway Ariel Remix dyed by @spottedewefibers.

SQUEE!!! It feels so good to finally finish this spindle project I started in November of 2015! This was all spun on an @akerworks Geranium. Now to find another outstanding spindle project to play with and also time to get back to some delicious Targhee from @spottedewefibers.

This is one happy bobbin. 💚💙💚💙 Fiber is Targhee in the colorway Ariel Remix dyed by @spottedewefibers.

I finished this gorgeous Targhee spin during the @daedalusspinningwheels Zoom Spin in on Wednesday. This project and this wheel has been such an immense source of peacefulness for it. It’s brought me so many smiles and makes my heart sing whenever I worked on it. I enjoyed it so much I had to order a second braid from @spottedewefibers. After I finish another 4 oz of this colorway I should be able to fit 2 more 4 oz braids into this bobbin. I haven’t picked yet what will be next. At the moment I’ve got about 9 oz packed on.

I’m trying my best to find ways to support the community. I know we are all having a difficult time and I hope that we can all support each other so we can make it through. I’ve bought a bit of fiber from dyers I was planning on shopping from at cancelled events. This pile of gorgeousness is from Scarlet of @huckleberryknits. She has a beautiful eye for color and often times several of her colorways catch my eyes as me colors. 💚 #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #huckleberryknits


A close up from the last post. This project has helped me so much over the past several days. I hope that everyone here is finding ways to cope through this pandemic. Keep crafting, stay strong, and be safe! ❤️ Fiber is Targhee in the colorway Ariel Remix dyed by @spottedewefibers.

I apologize for the lack of activity over here, I’m alive! I’ve been multitasking like crazy just to keep myself going. It’s been stressful but seeing all the wonderful live-streams and Zoom chats has been so wonderful. I’ve been chugging along on this braid that I started on the 17th. This wheel and this braid have been serious therapy for me and I am so thankful for my wonderful friends @daedalusspinningwheels and @spottedewefibers for this spectacular wheel and all the fiber I’ve gotten to spin on it. The whole thing keeps my heart singing. ❤️ Fiber is Targhee in the colorway Ariel Remix dyed by @spottedewefibers.

SQUEEEE!!!!! I’m so excited to share this with you all. @akerworks and @daedalusspinningwheels are teaming up! The first bobbins to go through compatibility testing will be the Magpie(they are massive and horde a lot of printer time for Dave). Testing is going well so far. After Magpie bobbins are good to go Starling bobbins should be soon to follow. 😄 Magpie custom made by me with permission from original designer/maker @daedalusspinningwheels. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #magpiespinner #electricspinningwheel #daedalusspinningwheels #3dprinting #akerworks #akerworksdaedalusbobbins

Finished my 5 oz sock project on Magpie! Normally I would start plying right away but I’ll be tacking in a few more braids to this bobbin to get an idea of its capacity.

This Magpie makes my heart sing. My very first spin on her is looking gorgeous! Fiber is Superwash Merino/Bamboo/Nylon dyed by @spottedewefibers.

It might not look like a lot on this giant bobbin but I got a lot of spinning done while at the @madcowyarn Spin In.

Started my first project on my Magpie today. This is Superwash Merino/Bamboo/Nylon 60/30/10 dyed by @spottedewefibers.

When I say the Magpie is a big bird I truly mean it! Some folks at the spin in today were caught off guard with just how massive this wheel is. She’s about 2 Starling Mini’s long and I could place 3 Minis sideways in her foot print. Despite how massive she is she’s light on her wings in terms of speed, tension, and weight. It’s been so wonderful to get to know this wheel. @daedalusspinningwheels has clearly outdone himself with this amazing wheel.

Today I took my brand new Magpie out for her first Spin In to @madcowyarn. I absolutely love attending this spin in. Molly and Bob the owners are wonderful and the group that’s gather is such a joy. We had so much fun learning from each other. It’s so uplifting to be part of a social spinning circle again. ❤️ Magpie custom made by me with permission from original designer/maker @daedalusspinningwheels. . #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #magpiespinner #electricspinningwheel #daedalusspinningwheels #3dprinting

Day 2, Day 1, and Day 3 of the @hipstrings Base12 SAL. Slowly but surely! ❤️ #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #jenkinsturkishspindle #base12SAL #hipstrings #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday


Day 3, Day 2 and Day 1 of the @inglenookfibers advent. These batts are so gorgeous. Definitely out of my norm for color and texture but has been thoroughly enjoyable. ❤️ #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #jenkinsturkishspindle #inglenookfibersadvent #inglenookfibers #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday


Day 3 of the Base12 SAL by @hipstrings. Slowly but surely working my way through this spin along. It’ll take me quite awhile but it will fill my year with so much fun. I love how this colorway reminds me of fire and the wood of this spindle is Oregon Flame Maple. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #jenkinsturkishspindle #base12SAL #hipstrings #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday


Day 3 of @inglenookfibers advent spin. I promise I haven’t fallen off the wagon. The advent spins are slow going and I decided to not have more than 6 spindles for this project going at a time as I don’t have enough storage for them to be safely tucked away when not being worked on. I’m loving all of the fibers and they have been a pleasant challenge being very different from what I normally spin. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #jenkinsturkishspindle #inglenookfibersadvent #inglenookfibers #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday
