Gorgeous collection 😍 #Repost @brittglueckskeks • • • • • I'm joining the Triathlon in the #mirkwoodarts group on #ravelry and I like to activate a lot of my spindles because some of them are sleeping 💤, don't ask my why?! I love them all and there are some more for the next stage to dance💃 #mirkwoodspindles #hummelspindle #hummelspindel #matthesspindle #matthesspindel #enidashcroft #texasjeansspindle #peterlockespindel #lockespindel #sillysalmonspindles #buhuspinnt #supportedspindle #spindleporn #handspinnersofinstagram #spinstagram #igspinnersinspiration
There's a good reason why Sheepish Fibre Art is not called Sheepish Indie Dyed Yarns or something yarn specific - it ain't just about the yarn! Ok so mostly it is, but in the background there is spinning, raw fibre processing, a bit of weaving, the odd bit of needle felting. You get the picture! I'm a very proud member of the Exquisite Yarn and Fiber Community group on Facebook, and very recently I signed up for a drop spindling class. The wonderful @spinningyarnsdesigns showed us her large collection of spindles and how to make yarn with them, and I've been hunting for the perfect spindle since then. My mum had a basic drop spindle from my friend Louise @spincityuk which I've been practicing with, but I quickly realised that owing to my fatigue and pain issues 🤕, using a supported spindle was probably the way to go: easier on me, and I can do it curled up on the sofa in comfort 🤓 After much research, I came across Enid Ashcroft's amazing spindles on Etsy. Enid talked me through my options, I scoured her past sales to find the wood and shape of spindle that I liked. And here we are! Enid has very kindly let me use her photos. This is my custom order of a Tibetan style support spindle made out of spalted beech, with an Ebano shaft, with a matching spinning bowl. I'm going to be stalking our post lady for the next few days 😉 When I've had a chance to refine my skills, I'll take a video. It's my aim to master long draw, or woollen spinning (as opposed to worsted (short draw). More in due course!
The singles are done! I've been spinning thicker than usual, which is why I managed to spin 400 grams in less than two weeks. . #spinning #spinstagram #spinnersofinstagram #spindle #spindles #spindleporn #MalcolmFielding #mirkwoodarts #SpanishPeacock #NealBrand #EnidAshcroft #mingoandasho #glasspin #sal #elves #hobbits #dwarves #thriathlon #combospin #meilindisspins

Handspun yarn from IF 12 Days of Christmas #inglenookfibers #bosworthspindle #enidashcroft #enidashcroftspindles
Some spinning this weekend for the triathlon in the #mirkwoodarts group on #ravelry .So much fun!🎉 It's themed 'Hobbits and Elves',, my project is named 'Hobbitfeet' because of the colours 😁🐾👣🍁🍂 #buhuspinnt #sal #handspindles #spindlespinning #supportedspindle #matthesspindle #enidashcroft #matthesspindel #handspinnersofinstagram #ig_spinners #mirkwoodspindles #spinstagram #spinnersofinstagram #spinnenmachtspass #spindleporn
Since a very long time i've spun a bit! For the last few days i haven't slept very well. And somehow i don't feel like knitting when i'm tired, but i do like it when my hands keep busy. So i searched, and found a little turkish spindle. I got this beautiful fiber from @lienekebosman. She was so kind to be my personal shopper, but she also gave this to me as as a gift! She bought it at Edinburgh Yarn Festival. It's from John Arbon. I love this color!!! #enidashcroftspindles #johnarbon #turkishspindle #enidashcroft #fiber #spinningfiber #spinning #spinnersofinstagram #spinningyarn #handspun #spindle #spindles #spinningfiber #eyf2018 #eyf

Finally finished the green spin #enidashcroft
I spun this yarn for my Tiffany Knitting students at Madrona so they can explore some multi-directional knitting. I’m choosing different yarns for my students that will either be glasslike or will work well for the Jazzknitting techniques I invented. It’s fun to analyze skeins that have been produced or painted different ways and figure out optimal uses for them in describing stained glass. . #madrona #madronafiberarts #turkishspindle #turkishspindles #enidashcroft #beads #tiffany #tiffanylamp #knitting #handmade #handmadeyarn #color #fiber #glass
Today's promt for #wemakeyarn is Favorite Tool. I'm not going to pick a favorite, because usually the one I am using at the time is my favorite 😂. But here is a collage of some of them. My rack of spindles. The rack itself was an anniversary present a few years ago 😍. My #schachtflatiron spinning wheel! My spindle bowl from #dancinggoats and a homemade diz from a shell charm. #saraspins365 #spin365 #spindlespun #wheelspun #sillysalmondesigns #enidashcroft #hersheyfiberarts #texasjeans #malcolmfielding #bosworthspindle #philpowell #bristleconeartisanheirlooms #jenkinsfinch #jenkinsaegean #handspinnersofinstagram #handspunyarn #handspunstagram #igyarnspinners #spin15aday2018challenge #spin15adayin2018 #spinstagram
#wemakeyarn day 6: where I spin. Well, I spin a lot of places. I move my wheel around with me so I will spin on the couch, in my "studio" or take it outside. I drop spin from my comfy pc chair, or walking around or outside. I mainly sit on my couch when I support spin. Regardless of where I spin, you will usually find me with a trusty mug of tea 😊 #saraspins365 #spin365 #spin15aday2018challenge #handspinnersofinstagram #handspunstagram #igspinners #handspunyarn #imakeyarn #schachtflatiron #bosworthspindle #sillysalmondesigns #jenkinsfinch #jenkinsaegean #hersheyfiberarts #texasjeans #enidashcroft #akerworks @ceraphinabys #plymagazine #ashfordespinner
Last night I finished spinning this lovely yellow roving with silk from #hilltopkatie on my #enidashcroft spindle. After Christmas I will check all my bobbins and spindles and finish all the projects (which will probably take till summer 😬)
0ne brief wait on line (the first cop of singles) plus one ride across town (the second cop of singles) plus one ride back (the two singles cops plied together), equals 20 yards of sweet plied yarn! Grab those unexpected moments... they really do add up. Turkish spindling class Dec. 10 in Portland, Oregon at the Textile Hive at 1:00, all levels welcome. Info at textilehive.com under events, “Magical Turkish Spindles”, and that they are! . #turkishspindles #class #portland #portlander #portlandoregon #textiles #textilehive #textilestudent #textilesstudent #green #yarn #handmade #handspun #handspinning #handspunyarn #foundmoments #yarnstash #savetime #handdyed #handdyedwool #handdyedfiber #enidashcroft
Spinning today while waiting on line at FedEx. How nice to have beautiful new yarn to work with by making the most of moments that would normally slip by. I’m teaching Turkish spindling at the Textile Hive in Portland, Oregon on Sunday afternoon, Dec.10. Info and signup at textilehive.com under events. Come join us, no prior experience necessary. . #class #portland #portlander #portlandoregon #turkishspindles #turkishspindle #handmade #handspun #handdyedwool #yarn #handmadeyarn #color #enidashcroft #enidashcroftspindles #edjenkins #spindler #spinner #spinnersofinstagram #turkishspindler
I am teaching Turkish Spindling at the Textile Hive in Portland, Oregon on Sunday, Dec. 10 from 1-5. Go to textilehive.com under events for class description and signup. If you are in the area please come. I never thought I’d have time to spin but with Turkish spindles you can use time you didn’t know you had! You can spin when you watch TV or when sitting in a passenger seat in a car or plane or when you’re standing on line waiting. You can build anything you want into a yarn and it’s beautiful and fun and addictive! . #portland #portlander #portlandoregon #turkishspindles #handmade #yarn #handdyedwool #handspun #spinner #class #yarntools #enidashcroft #spindler #handmadeyarn

RELAX - Day 9 #wovemberinstachallenge I love knitting but spinning - to me - is even more relaxing. I used to spin a lot more, often with a knitting project in mind. Nowadays I have no goals, I only spin for relaxation. It's a form of meditation. #wovember #wovember2017 #wearwoolforwovember #wearwooleveryday #instaspin #handspinning #turkishspindle #enidashcroft #spinningfiber #handmadespindle
Managed to snatch one of the beautiful Turkish minis from #enidashcroft #spindling #handspinning #handspun #wool
Current spin: #newhuehandspuns BamHuey (60-40 merino-bamboo) in 'Solar Flare' on an #enidashcroft spindle. #spindlespun #handspinnersofinstagram #handspinning #spindlersofinstagram
Loving this spin! #enidashcroft #helloyarn
The postman brought me a new family of spindles today #Turkish #enidashcroft
Looks like I have a lot of cops stored up to ply together now. Many were made while watching TV with subtitles so they are quite messy but they will work fine. It's fun to mix and match singles to ply together. I love plying strands that have different fiber contents in hopes they will catch the light or shrink differently. The Turkish spindle in the picture is by @enidashcroft. It has a number of small cops plied together on it with colors changing throughout. I'll skein it up and show the range. My goal is to make glass inspired yarns for Tiffany lampshade inspired knitting. . #turkishspindle #turkishspindles #turkishspindlespinning #spindler #spinnersofinstagram #handmade #handmadeyarn #handdyed #knittersoftheworld #knittersofinstagram #enidashcroft #tiffany #tiffanylamp #tiffanycolor #tiffanyglass
Got some spinning done in the car today using a merino bamboo blend of fiber. This picture was taken as I looked down at my lap as we drove through hazelnut orchards and vineyards south of Portland, Oregon. #cartrip #bamboo #iphone7 #handdyedwool #spindlersofinstagram #turkishspindle #turkishspindles #spindle #spindler #spindlers #patterns #color #summer #handmade #enidashcroft #enidashcroftspindles #handdyedyarn #handdyedyarns #spun #spinning #spinningfiber #spinningfibre #roadtrip #merinowool #merino #portlandoregon #portland
A little more Turkish spindling to add into my Tiffany lampshade inspired knitting. The blue cop has a lot of different colors happening inside so I'm eager to skein it. The skeins in this picture still need to be rinsed and snapped to set the twist and to make the yarns bloom. #handdyed #handmade #turkishspindle ##turkishspindles #enidashcroft #handknit #tiffany #tiffanylamp #tiffanylamps #tiffanylampshade #inspiration #knittersoftheworld #knittersofinstagram #intarsia #spindle #spindlers #spindlersofinstagram #color #undersea #fish #goldfish #glass #handdyedwool #handdyedyarn #ebook #iphone7

A little spinning in the car today.... It's so nice and easy to always have a Turkish spindle with me along with a bit of fiber. They say wheel spinning is faster but I can do this anywhere, even when standing on line, and honestly, spinning a bit here and there quickly adds up to miles and miles of beautiful yarn. #handmade #handspun #handspunyarn #handspunwool #handdyedwool #handdyedyarn #enidashcroft #turkishspindle #turkishspindles #spindler #spindlersofinstagram #spindle #spindles #boden #bodenusa
Trying out a new spindle today, from Enid Ashcroft. The fiber is from Hilltop Cloud. Both lovely ❤️ #twftdf17 #merinocorridale #tdf2017 #teamtwf #enidashcroft #turkishspindle
This is a very old project (2015) I have to finish 🤔 ✅#tourdefleece2017 #enidashcroft #spinningyarn #handspunstagram #handspun #handspunyarn
#spininprogress A rainbow gradient batt by the lovely @craftyjaks that I am finally getting back to! Soft carded BFL is spinning up like a dream. #spinnersofinstagram #enidashcroft #goldingspindle #dropspindlespinning #ravelry

My little Turkish spindle has to get in on the Tour de Fleece action too! Picking up on a spin already in progress. #tourdefleece #ravelry #enidashcroft
I'm ready for the Tour de Fleece! Can't wait to get started...
WARMING UP - for #tourdefleece with some grey shetland fleece and one of my tibetan spindles. I won't be participating in a team. My plan is to just watch some #tourdefrance and spin some yarn.
Yesterday was Knit in Public Day and did I knit as I listened to Tina from Blue Moon Fiber Arts speak about her yarn dyeing business at the Oregon Public Library in Salem? No, I spun! #textiles #handdyed #knittersofinstagram #handmade #handspun #handdyedwool #enidashcroft #inglenookfibers #inglenook

My latest piece of Tiffany stained glass inspired knitting. I'm writing my book, Knitting Tiffany, as I work on different ways of interpreting glass in yarns and knitting. I'm finding it so helpful to take pictures and make notes as I work so I can focus on lots of different ideas and techniques. This is a first detail of a much larger piece. I am combining handpainted yarn with some handspun yarn I've made with Turkish spindles. I have beautiful photos of real Tiffany glass for inspiration, but many of my pictures are from books so I am looking for copyright free photos for a book of my own. #knittersofinstagram #handspunyarn #turkishspindles #handspinnersofinstagram #tiffanylampshades #tiffanylamp #tiffany #tiffanylamps #tiffanyglass #tiffanylove #tiffanystyle #handknit #handmade #handmadelife #handmadelifestyle #handspun #handspunstagram #handdyed #handdyedwool #enidashcroft #edjenkins

A couple of beaded newbies on an Enid Ashcroft midi and an Ed Jenkins Aegean. I got to spend some time with Ed and Wanda at the Aurora Colony Spin-in yesterday, really delightful. This fabric was woven by Beth Poirier, she's a favorite too. #knittersofinstagram #knitters #handmade #edjenkins #enidashcroft #turkishspindle #turkishspindles #handspun #spindle #spindler
As the saying goes...Good to the last drop! Decided to chain-ply my very last bit of @elfenwolle Fair Sunset yarn that is to be added to my new sweater #turkishspindle #handspinnersofinstagram #elfenwolle #enidashcroft #enidashcroftspindles

#yarnlovechallenge day 9: #tools I love my fibre tools, especially my hand spindles. All those different gorgeous woods, the excellent craftsmanship... Just like a musical instrument, the choice of tools is highly personal. The perfect tool just feels right and adds so much joy to whatever you create with it, be it artwork, music, or plain simple yarn... #spinning #spinstagram #spinnersofinstagram #spindle #spindles #spindleporn #MalcolmFielding #malcolmfieldingspindles #TexasJeans #WoodlandWoodworking #mingoandasho #PhilPowell #EnidAshcroft #NealBrand #SillySalmonDesigns #TwistedGrain #KerrySpindles #mirkwoodarts #justducky #SpanishPeacock #supportedspindle #meilindisspins #malcolmfieldingspindle
