My June #boxreveal from @paradisefibers ....and I can't wait to get my dyepot out for this fiber. I will blend in the luscious Baby Camel/Tussah Silk for a rather heathered yarn. The dye included is Deep Orchid - and I am sliding heavily into purple luuuuurve these days. Link above if you're interested in trying their #fibersubscriptionbox.

It's here!! Ply Magazine's latest edition featuring the elusive-to-me, drop spindle. I started spinning on a wheel. I don't do things in linear fashion all the time it seems. Other news- ready to ply those lovely bobbins! . . . @plymagazine featuring @evanitaewm articles! Kromski Sonata bobbins with Bah Humbug Jacob (dark grey) and a cornucopia of lovely fibers listed in previous posts, which, when spun, will be knit into my languishing Fading Waves Shawl by @westknits. . . #spinster #spin15aday #igspins #ilovespinning #handspinning #handspun #kromskisonata #spinner #makersgonnamake #spinning #plytime #spinnersoftheworld #igspinners #spinnersofig #plymagazine #spinstersofig
One more bobbin to go- just look at the luscious FLUFF. Making yarn is a divine activity.  A childhood dream realized.

The gardening hasn't been done, but some soothing, meditative spinning has occurred.

Listening to my favorite First Lady, knitting socks with tea AND chocolate, savoring my newly washed handspun. Not pictured is the afternoon spent with a high school buddy, Sheila @sheilamcl, after many years out of touch. We are both knitters and spinners! Yep, snug as bugs in a rug even now🙆‍♀️ . . . Fanny Price test knit socks by @ambroseknits in Ghost of Mr Green on Dude by @schmutzerella including the Targhee/Bamboo/Silk "I Put a Spell on You" spinning fiber now 3ply yarn. . . #booksandknitting #handspun #handspunyarn #booksontape #igknitters #igspinners #becomingmichelleobama #michelleobama #sockknitting #fannypricesocks #socks #handknitsocks #spin15aday #spin15adaystashdown #instaknits #ilovetoknit #yarnporn #ilovetospin #knittersofig #schmutzerellayarns #spinstersofig #ravelry
Making yaaaaaarn! It never gets old. Gorgeous Targhee/Bamboo/Silk 3 ply, "I Put A Spell On You" from @schmutzerella, on my new Kromski Niddy Noddy and a bobbin of Rose Cellulose/Mulberry Silk 50/50  blend called "Stem", both from @paradisefibers. I'm thinking socks- cuz it's #operationsockdrawer year and plying the Rose and Silk into the remaining singles for a little heel and toe snazz.

14-ish/100 || Since I’ve not gone to sleep in more than 24 hours I’m claiming these few minutes I have to spin as part of the long day of Tuesday/Wednesday, and when I get home from this marathon of a day, before I begin to grade finals and do grades, I’ll spin my little heart out, than crash. . . . Friends, it’s been a rough past few days with all classes converging into extended amounts of work. This here is a 6” stack of essays, not counting the stack turned in Monday, or the creative writing packets being turned in this week. I have grades do tomorrow for my accelerated class, and a new class starting. . . . It’s exhausting when you add my coursework, but I am so grateful to see today, to have such deep support from my husband and kids who’ve been beside me, encouraging me, egging me on. I’m grateful for my amazing students, current and past, who give me so much joy and hope. I have crew of guys who make it a point to come, find me, and check on me every night class. They share their struggles and triumphs with me, they make me laugh, they also eat a lot. I’m exhausted, but God am I blessed. And!! My documentary is complete! 💪🏾🙌🏾 I am so proud of it I can’t stand it. It’s lyrical and beautiful. Okay, heading to class! . . . #quejimenez100spins #quejimenezspins #the100dayproject #100dayproject #spinning #spindle #spindlespinning #spinnersofinstagram #spinstersofig #100daysofspinning #100daysoffiberart #spinster #spinningyarn #spinningfiber #spinningtop #bflwool
Sunday taking my wheel for a SPIN day. It took most of the first bobbin to get a feel for this Targhee Top/Viscose Bamboo/Tussah Silk. I'm spinning for socks, with a fiber that didn't want to be too fine, plus Targhee definitely likes to plump out. So, this 3 ply yarn I'm making should be thick and toasty when I'm done. Gonna dye it with the Madder Root (that cool looking twig stuff) I received in January's fiber box subscription with the fiber from Feburary's Egypt themed box (see cute Nefertiewe?) all thanks to @paradisefibers . Spinning is soothing my soul and helping me s l o w down. . . . . #spinnersoftheworld #spin15aday #spin15aday2019 #igspinners #spinner #handspunstagram #fiber #woollove #handspun #paradisefibers #fibersubscriptionbox #spinnersofig #spinningfiber #makersgonnamake #handspunyarn #handspun #yarnporn #imakeyarn #igspuns #spinstersofig #madderroot #spinningsunday #slowsundays #creating #spin15adaystashdown #spin15adayhappy
Yarn PORN people. My latest handspun from a braid of @homesteadhobbyist Polwarth/BFL/Baby Camel (!) and my #spin15aday pin from @the1764shepherdess. It feels amazingly soft. It might be to nice for socks. #instaknitnight thanks again @danaraeknits for inviting me! . . #spin15aday2019 #spinner #spin #spinnersoftheworld #igspinners #handspunstagram #yarnporn #handspun #handspunyarn #yarn  #makersgonnamake #imakeyarn #wemakeyarn #spinnersofig #spinster #spinstersofig #handspinning #knitta #igknitters #knitsagram #knitaddict #instaknits #knitandbehappy #nevernotknitting #ilovespinning
Setting aside time to ply this gorgeous fiber from @homesteadhobbyist that @schmutzerella bought me as a twinsie bday gift. (We're both Nov 12th Scorpio Sisters) The colorway is Maretta Louise and the fiber content is amazing- Polwarth/BFL/Baby Camel. . @the1764shepherdess,  the mistress behind the brilliant madness of #spin15aday is the source of many spinners committing to their wheels and spindles and fiber with renewed vigor and love. Hats off to Sherrill- you make a difference. . . #spinnersoftheworld #igspinners #igspins #handspunstagram #spin15adaystashdown #spinner  #makersgonnamake #spinnersofig #spinningfiber #imakeyarn #spinster #wemakeyarn #handspunyarn #spinstersofig #handspinning #plytime #ilovespinning #imakestuff
I looooove @paradisefibers Fiber Subscription boxes. A spinners DE-light. This month, the focus on fiber for sock spinning is calling my name- hard. I am wearing as I write, my first pair of handspun socks, and they make me so damn happy. Can't wait to use this Targhee/Bamboo/Silk 80/10/10 blend to spin me up some sock yarn. . . Link above to get a box- never too late to treat yourself😉 . . #paradisefibers #boxreveal #fibersubscriptionbox #boxunveiling #paradisefibersfiberclub #fiberclub #igspinners #handspunstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiber #spinnersoftheworld #spinnersofig #spinner #spinningfiber #wool #woollove #ilovespinning #imakeyarn #wemakeyarn #spinster #spinstersofig
First full size Chain/Navajo ply I've ever done! I really struggle with getting a nice, consistent chain ply but I think I'm FINALLY getting the hang of it (its either that or spinning three separate bobbins for a 3ply, bah!) Spun with Malabrigo Nube in the colourway, "Plomo". Now, to make socks with it, or something else?? 🤔 🧦  #spinnersofig #spinnersofinstagram #spinning #spinstersofig #spinningyarn #malabrigo #malabrigonube #handspinning #handspunyarn #chainply #navajoply #practicemakesperfect
Unboxing my @paradisefibers January Fiber Subscription Box feels a little like armchair traveling. My fingers are itching to feel the Manx Loughton from the Isle of Man, White Kent Romney from England and Peduncle Silk from India. And having never dyed with plants, the Madder Root is kind of exciting. That the box was inspired by Tolkien, a favourite author since high school, is magic.

I love yarn so much, I need to make some as often as I can. Spinning has become such a sacred outlet for me- and holiday knitting kinda got in the way of some long spin playdates. Well, I'm baaaack! If you've never tried spinning, well, you just should. Talk about a wool meditation indeed.

Humom got a new toy for Christmas! 🎄🎁🎅 Finally moving on up in the (spinning) world! Couldn't afford a spanking brand new one, but buying a wheel used sometimes has its benefits... It came with a buttload of bobbins and a snazzy travel bag. Looking forward to giving 'er a spin! 🤩 . . . #spinnersofinstagram #spinnersofig #spinstersofinstagram #spinstersofig #spinningwheel #schacht #schachtsidekick #sidekick #schachtspindle
Spooky spin yarn is totally haunted- jumped off the ball winder and flew through the air.

My Halloween fiber subscription box from @paradisefibers -Creepy Corriedale and undyed Alpaca/Silk. They also included two cool patterns, a felting and tapestry needle and some of my all time favorite sock darning thread. I put the link to their fiber wonderfulness up above. . . . #fiberdiva #fiberislife #paradisefibers #fibersubscription #boxreveal #fibersubscriptionbox #igspinners #spinnersofig #spinnersoftheworld #spin15aday #spinningfiber #woollove #ilovespinning #handspunstagram #spinster #halloween🎃 #imakeyarn #spinstersofig #hallowencrafts #corriedale #creepycorriedale #makersgonnamake #makeyarn

My Spinzilla finishes. About 6 ounces total. The one on the left is a chain ply, and I’m expecting about 400 yards of fingering. The one on the left is a two-ply and I’m expecting about 250 yards of light fingering. Magical special Spinzilla math would indicate I definitely passed the goal of one mile. I’ll wind, measure, wash, and thwack them tomorrow after I get home from class.
Spinzilla begins at midnight, so I’m arming myself with the first braid I’ll be tackling in my annual quest to spin a mile of yarn. Definitely gonna chain ply this one in order to preserve the color groupings. This is from @nerdgirlyarns on her merino/bamboo/nylon base in the colorway “Looking Through a Telescope”. For now though, I gotta try to finish the single I’ve currently got in the wheel so I feel less guilty about setting it aside unfinished at midnight. #spinning #spinnersofinstagram #spin #spinners #wip #sip #operationfinishallthethings #schachtspinners #schachtladybug #spinster #spinner #spinstersofinstagram #spinnersofig #spinstersofig #froghair #spinzilla #spinzilla2018 #agoodyarnsarasota #purldivers #handspinning #spinstagram #handspinner #handspinners #handspun #handspunstagram #handspinnersofig #spin #spin15aday2018challenge #akerworks #schactsidekick #nerdgirlyarns
My handspun Shetland and Jacob- touring through sheep breeds and learning what I might love spending hours scouring, spinning and knitting. Shetland is a definitely a new favorite. . . .

This spinner needs HELP. The Cotswald fleece I washed 2 years ago (before I knew what the heck I was doing) is felted and still greasy. I am successful with my flicker in opening it up and running it through the drum carder- oh, like 4 times, but the lanolin- ugh. The unit sample isn't too bad, but is this worth the effort? Inquiring minds want to know.... . . . . #spinnersoftheworld #spinstersofig #spin15aday2018challenge #spin15aday #imakeyarn #wemakeyarn #spinnersofig #igspinners #spinningfiber #cotswald #woollove #fiberlicicious #wemakeyarn #spin #spinster #handspunstagram #handspunyarn #fiberdiva #fiberislife #spinning #neverenoughyarn

The yummy contents of my September Fiber Subscription Box from @paradisefibers up close and personal. Yep- fiber for d a y s. . . . Cheviot Wool and 4 colors of Sari Silk. Highlighter pens to draw on the Cheviot after giving it a vinegar soak, plastic gloves, a cool pin, gum and a limited production sticker.
