Happy green turtle spinning from yesterday. 💚 🐢 💚 Fiber is Summer’s Day by @huckleberryknits on BFL spun on a @jeribrock Turkish Spindle. #igspinnersinspiration #spinningyarn #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #spinstagram #wemakeyarn #handspun #handspunyarn #handspunwool #handspunstagram #spinnersoftheworld #spinnersofravelry #handspinnersofinstagram #handspinning #handspinner #handspinnersofig #fiberfeature #fiberyfun365 #Spin15aday #turkishspindle #jeribrockwoodworks #jeribrockspindle #huckleberryknits


It’s done!!!!! I’ve been working on filling up these two Sparrow bobbins since I got my Sparrows. This spinning was for a review I’m writing for tinyStudio Creative Life Magazine. I wanted to compare bobbin capacity with wool(in hand) and cotton. I’m amazed at the difference and so proud of those two beautifully stuffed bobbins. If you’d like to check out tinyStudio I’ve got links in my profile. TinyStudio is a digital publication soon to be offered in print starting with the next issue. #daedalusspinningwheels #daedalussparrow #SparrowSpinner #spinwithdaedalus #madewithdaedalus #teamdaedalus #electricspinner #espinner #electricspinningwheel #spinningwheel #igspinnersinspiration #spinningyarn #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #spinstagram #spinallthethings #spinallthefibers #wemakeyarn #handspun #handspunstagram #spinnersoftheworld #handspinnersofinstagram #handspinning #handspinner #handspinnersofig #cottonspinning #handspuncotton #seaislandcotton #easytospincotton


This gorgeousness I’m combing up with my new @majacraftnz prototype Extra Fine Hand Combs is some lovely British Polwarth gifted to me by @longdrawjames. It’s such a wonderful fleece to process and the combs have been such a delight to use. These new combs are still in development so please have patience. I’m looking forward to when Majacraft will be able to offer these up for sale. ❤️ #igspinnersinspiration #spinningyarn #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #spinstagram #wemakeyarn #handspun #handspunyarn #handspunwool #handspunstagram #spinnersoftheworld #spinnersofravelry #handspinnersofinstagram #handspinning #handspinner #handspinnersofig #fiberfeature #fiberyfun365 #Spin15aday #majacraft #majacrafthandcombs #handcombs #processingfleece


For those who were worried that when the #ravelryaccessibility walk out ended that the traffic rank would go back to lower better numbers... well it’s still taking a hit. Yesterday it was down 20 ranks from the last day of the walk out. I’m guessing it will continue to go down as people abandon the site for alternatives that don’t cause them problems until it levels out with those who remain unaffected. #ravelry #ravelrypro #ravelryaccessibility #ravelrydesigner #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #knittersofinstagram #crochetersofinstagram #weaversofinstagram #newravelrydesign #knittersofravelry #ravelrycrochet #ravelrydesigner #ravelrydesigners #ravelryupdate #ravelryknitter #ravelryknitters #crochetersofravelry #inclusivemaker #ravelrywipwed
