I finished spinning this single yesterday. Will be setting the twist in this and other skeins tomorrow. 😜

I recently went to @easttexasfiberfestival with my bff @yarnmagician and had a fantastic time meeting a few of my favorite dyers, acquiring some beautiful yarn and fiber, and taking a class by @twistedspindler on how to spin art yarn on a drop spindle.
.
I basically gave all of my money to @potionyarns because, come on, her yarn is gorgeous, her aesthetic is amazing, and her color names are brilliant. I seriously went back to her booth 3 times to make purchases. 😂 I got two skeins of Perfect Gentleman, one skein of Brave New World, and two skeins of Whiskey Hangover.
.
And how genius was @leonalexanderyarns's fiber bar?! Logan had everything set up so that he could create custom fiber batts and @yarnmagician and I took advantage. There was banana fiber, you guys. BANANA. The staple length is incredibly long and it was insanely soft. Scroll to see my custom batt (which will not sit for long because I want to spin with it very, very soon).
.
Got just a couple photos of the vendor area, the @leonalexanderyarns booth, the @potionyarns booth, and the fiber piled on the table for @twistedspindler's wonderful class. Sheryl was so much fun to talk with and to learn from. Can't wait to see her again at @dfwfiberfest. I'm also excited to try my hand at spinning more art yarn on a drop spindle, although my one top whirl spindle is not quite heavy enough. Guess I've got to remedy that eventually. 😄
.
All in all, it was well worth the 2 hour drive and bundling up in handknits to spend the day with other folks who love fiber as much as we do.
.
Oh! And I got to wear my finished #anaashahsweater, which I need to photograph. I can't believe it's cold enough that I can wear a sweater in Texas and it isn't even February! 😂

I do some of my best spinning when I’m sick. I mean seriously, look at this alpaca w/ bamboo. 🧶 🦙 😍 #handspunyarn #dropspindlespinning #spinnersofinstagram #handspunstagram #dropspindle

This is the woman who taught me to use the traditional handmade drop spindles in India. Just thought you might like to see how big and bulky they are! They have sent me one.

These are three of my favorite books but thanks to all of today’s posts, my Amazon wishlist just grew exponentially! Thank you everyone!

New blog post up! Link in profile. My vision and purpose for TS seems to be coming into focus. It all starts with a sheep.

53 yards of this alpaca/mohair 90/10 blend that I solar dyed with wild blackberries over the summer. 😍 I’m really proud of this little skien! #handspunyarn #handspunstagram #spinnersofinstagram #dropspindlespinning #dropspindle #solardyed #solardyedyarn #alpacamohair #DIYyarn

Today's pre work crafting session thanks to car pooling with Mr. Nerdy to work was practicing my spinning consistency, still not perfect but in my opinion way better than how my last batch of roving spun. This fiber is from the amazing @threewatersfarm. *~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*

My little rolag experiment is now all wound and plied. I’m soooo proud. A chain plied light fingering weight yarn. I guess I really can spin thin! Now to skein, wash and count yards.

First time successfully using the new spindle from my last @fibreshare partner @followyourarrowfarm! Took some practice, but I think I got it down now. Plying up the alpaca/mohair I solar dyed with blackberries over the summer.

A lovely shepherdess in France sold me this fleece from one of her mouton just a week ago. I am not sure whether it is the right sort of fleece for spinning but I decided to give it a go. That’s the joy of being a complete novice!!
The result so far is a really interesting textured yarn. It’s such an enjoyable thing to do and I am really loving it. Next step will probably involve some dye as it’s just crying out for some colour. The possibilities are endless. #dropspindlespinning #spinningfleece #spinning #lovespinning #ilovespinning #creatingfromnature #wymerswitney #wymers #wymersandco

I finally sat down and plied these singles from @wichitawoolery. I will have a second skein sometime fairly soon. #handspunyarn #dropspindlespinning

I enjoyed spending my afternoon with @prettyfunkyknitter showing off our drop spindle spinning skills at the IGWSD stand #knitandstitchshow #spinningindublin #spinnersofinstasgram #dropspindlespinning #diversknitty

As a mom. You learn how to do anything with one arm. Seriously. Anything.
