This special delivery arrived from one of my favorite local dyers @woolgatherings. She wasn’t dyeing there for awhile and I’m so extremely excited to see her back to dyeing. She has such gorgeous color sense. #igspinnersinspiration #spinningyarn #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #spinstagram #wemakeyarn #handspun #handspunyarn #handspunwool #handspunstagram #spinnersoftheworld #spinnersofravelry #handspinnersofinstagram #handspinning #handspinner #handspinnersofig #fiberfeature #fiberyfun365 #Spin15aday #woolgatherings

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

I’m currently working on a review for the @daedalusspinningwheels Sparrow for tinyStudio Magazine. I’m testing out capacity and I’m getting so close to filling this bobbin. When I get this close though the bobbins seem to have a black hole and just never fill. I’m prepared though 😂 how much of this will it take... I don’t know. #daedalusspinningwheels #daedalussparrow #SparrowSpinner #spinwithdaedalus #madewithdaedalus #teamdaedalus #electricspinner #espinner #electricspinningwheel #spinningwheel #igspinnersinspiration #spinningyarn #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #spinstagram #spinallthefibers #wemakeyarn #handspun #handspunyarn #handspunstagram #handspinnersofinstagram #handspinning #handspinner #handspinnersofig #fiberyfun365 #Spin15aday


Ravelry continues to loose followers here on Instagram. I refuse to follow them inflating their ego. I also noticed they had a dramatic loss in people they follow. I’m unsure if they unfollowed or maybe blocked some people... or whether people forced the unfollow. I’m guessing a little bit of all of those scenarios. #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

For a point of reference on June 12th four days before the launch of NuRav the Alexa International rank was 7,965. Today it’s all the way down to 12,181. You want your rank to be a lower number. The higher number is bad and it keeps going higher. This is a clear indication that something is not right. I’m not sure how they don’t see this. #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


For anyone who doubted we could cause any significant change in traffic to the site. This clearly shows we have made a difference in the traffic! On March 29th the rank was 11,651 and it’s now dropped all the way down to 12,181. Remember when it comes to traffic rank on Alexa you want your rank number as low as possible. We will continue this walk out until April 6th! The date for this data is April 1st 2021. #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


We are extending the walk out by popular demand for a full week ending at the end of April 6th. Please spread the word! This was changed in light of how many people are just now learning of these issues and wanting to take part. This will also hopefully make a bigger impact. Remember that sharing your experience and interacting with others’ posts will help others more aware of what’s going on. Thanks so much to everyone who’s participating! ❤️ #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

Here is the larger picture of @hi.Ravelry’s Alexa International Ranking. You would think during a time when people had more free time to spend socializing online that the traffic would be increased. Here you can see a massive drop off when Ravelry launched NuRav and the it more or less stabilized. My personal thought on this is that the massive drop off are individuals who were greatly affected by the layout and were forced to abandon the site. ☹️ To clarify you want a low number rank. The world’s largest online art community DeviantArt is rank 440. Bigger numbers are bad. #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


The numbers are in for @hi.ravelry’s International Alexa Rank. The number at the top is March 31st and the number highlighted in the graph is March 30th. #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

In non Ravelry news the magazine I’m the photo editor for tinyStudio Creative Life Magazine is finally working towards print publication. We are 22% towards our goal to be able to make print production possible! We are so thankful to all our subscribers so far and hope we can make it print publication possible. I have had one off prints made for our past issues and it is such a delight to see all of the beautiful and inspiring content on pages rather than a screen. For anyone who wants to learn more about this magazine I have links in my profile link. ❤️ #tinystudiomagazine #tinystudiocreativelife #tinystudiocreativelifemagazine #fiberygoodness #igspinnersinspiration #spinningyarn #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #spinstagram #wemakeyarn #handspun #handspunyarn #handspunstagram #spinnersoftheworld #handspinnersofinstagram #handspinning #handspinner #handspinnersofig #weaving #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #handweaving #handweaversofinstagram #crochetersofinstagram #knittersofinstagram #handmadelove #fiberart #fiberartists #fiberfeature #Spin15aday


Thank you so much to everyone who has help spread the word. ❤️ Text from original post about event. Make sure to check the original post for full details. — Ravelry will be removing Classic permanently after March 31st. NuRav has caused a huge accessibility issue resulting in visual discomfort, migraines, and for some individuals seizures. We must make our voices heard in hopes that maybe this time they’ll listen. Please read over the following images, share, repost, and make your voice heard! ❤️ #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

I may have kidnapped a Tahkli and bowl set from the wholesale box. Love the way these spindles spin so fast! A set of 9 Tahkli/bowls will be heading over to the UK. #igspinnersinspiration #spinningyarn #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #spinstagram #spinallthethings #spinallthefibers #wemakeyarn #handspun #handspunstagram #spinnersoftheworld #spinnersofravelry #handspinnersofinstagram #handspinning #handspinner #handspinnersofig #cottonspinning #handspuncotton #seaislandcotton #tahkli #tahklispindle #tahklispinning #tahklispun


A close up of the WPI for my Sea Island Cotton spinning. Approximately 80 WPI. #daedalusspinningwheels #daedalussparrow #SparrowSpinner #spinwithdaedalus #madewithdaedalus #teamdaedalus #electricspinner #espinner #electricspinningwheel #spinningwheel #igspinnersinspiration #spinningyarn #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #spinstagram #spinallthethings #spinallthefibers #wemakeyarn #handspun #handspunstagram #spinnersoftheworld #spinnersofravelry #handspinnersofinstagram #handspinning #handspinner #handspinnersofig #cottonspinning #handspuncotton #seaislandcotton


I ordered this awesome Fleece Loved Products Ollaberry Lace Weight Gauge and it arrived in the package I got from @longdrawjames. This is the same gauge he’s been using to calculate his WPI for his cotton and cobweb singles. It looks like my cotton singles are roughly 80 WPI which is inline with how fine James’s cotton singles were. #daedalusspinningwheels #daedalussparrow #SparrowSpinner #spinwithdaedalus #madewithdaedalus #teamdaedalus #electricspinner #espinner #electricspinningwheel #spinningwheel #igspinnersinspiration #spinningyarn #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #spinstagram #spinallthethings #spinallthefibers #wemakeyarn #handspun #handspunstagram #spinnersoftheworld #spinnersofravelry #handspinnersofinstagram #handspinning #handspinner #handspinnersofig #cottonspinning #handspuncotton #seaislandcotton
