aprairiesunrise 120yds of sport-ish weight 3-ply handspun in all its beauty! I don't always pick the best way to spin or ply my fiber, but I'm very happy with how this one turned out! #spin15in15 #aprairiesunrisespins #worldofspinners And this #mainefibertools spindle held all 1.4oz of plied yarn! #plyingsupported 4min

aprairiesunrise Clearing off more spindles today for #spin15in15. And trying to decide if I want to try a navajo ply from the ply ball or not. I'm leaning towards yes! #aprairiesunrisespins 21h

aprairiesunrise Finally finished my #greatdivideshawl for #LoopyAcademy #stripes challenge. I've admired so many people's Great Divides, it was nice to finally knit my own! #aprairiesunriseknits 1d

aprairiesunrise Sunday Funday! The feed store had a Mother's Day event where the kids got to decorate pots and then plant flowers (or veggies). I got marigolds!! And it was so much fun that we did another one for our "grandma" neighbor with snapdragons, pansies, & alyssum! Then Ruby put her new skills to use and helped me plant some more flowers when we got home. #learnbydoing #toddlerhomeschool #wildandfreechildren #RubyVerna 3d

aprairiesunrise More of Ruby's friends keeping today's spinning safe! They may not be handmade like the last group of friends, but they were all gifted to Ruby with love and are just as special! The pup is from Auntie Maria @croflip07, the elephant is from Aunt Wendy @pezgurl84x, & the bear was from the ER nurse when Jake had his accident last year. Today was jam packed with full moon madness so this is a nice peaceful view to look at before bed. #herestoabettertomorrow #spin15in15 #aprairiesunrisespins 4d

aprairiesunrise Only about 20 minutes of spinning today and I was lucky to get that! I'm not quite sure what Ruby & I did all day, but we sure were busy! #spin15in15 #aprairiesunrisespins #mayday 5d

  •   phylliswhite Ha, ha I remember that! At least toddlers take naps... No let up for those that are parents of teenagers 😬 5d
  •   aprairiesunrise @phylliswhite Well I was going to say that she rarely naps anymore, but she's conked out in my lap right now! And we're watching The Jungle Book so I know she must have been exhausted!! 5d
  •   phylliswhite @aprairiesunrise Enjoy it while it lasts! 5d

aprairiesunrise Thank goodness for fiber! I seriously want a whole sweater quantity of this colorway from @thewoolywitch!! Would 6oz be enough for a child's SQ, you think? I'd love a sweater in this for me, but that is too daunting of a task right now. It would never get made. A sweater for Ruby, on the other hand, that's doable! #spin15in15 #aprairiesunrisespins #supportedspindle 6d
  •   bakewell_hearts Maybe a shawl... then you could wear it?.. lovely colour. 6d
  •   thewoolywitch Beautiful job spinning! I love how it looks with the spindle =) 6d
  •   aprairiesunrise Thanks @thewoolywitch! Will you be listing this colorway soon? It's such a beautuful rose! I'm also curious about that darker color of yours that @phatfiber posted. Is it a brown? 5d
  •   thewoolywitch "Cersei" will be going up later today as well as "Hand of the King" which is actually black merino and bamboo with wine red and gold angelina. I do have a brown that is similar though. That would be February's colorway "Chocolatl" inspired by The Golden Compass. 5d
  •   thewoolywitch Never mind me, I just took a peek at your pics again and had forgotten you already spun some Chocolatl =) 5d
  •   aprairiesunrise @thewoolywitch Oooo! Hand of the King sounds lovely! I was actually hoping it was black not brown, since as you saw I've spun Chocolatl (which I also love!). 5d

aprairiesunrise Ugh!! #whatamess Set up the bookcase this morning and hauled all these books downstairs to the office and on my second to last load this happened! #notdealingwithittonight #tuckeyfamilybasementrenovation 6d
  •   joannajohnson Noooo 6d
  •   engineersfalcon Oh no! 6d
  •   cookecreekwool Ruh-roh. 6d
  •   diverjan Hope only damage is to your pride. Going to be nice. 6d
  •   aprairiesunrise @diverjan Yeah, the bookcase & desk are fine. We just didn't use a long enough screw and since the bookcase is warped it pulled away with the weight. 6d
  •   bakewell_hearts Opps! Did you stack the top half first? I did that with a plastic greenhouse... came out to plant everywhere... stacked the bottom with heaviest and its not happened since thankfully!! Hope you get it all sorted 6d
  •   mycraftycrap Yikes! I'm glad Ruby wasn't there. 6d
  •   sitsnspins 😯😮😬 6d

aprairiesunrise Not much progress in 20 minutes today. I think this fiber needs to be worked on a drop spindle instead of supported, it just caught too much. #learnbydoing #spin15in15 #aprairiesunrisespins #rambouillet 1w

aprairiesunrise We've been busy today! Ruby's first rolag and my first time doing a 3-ply yarn, which I'm really enjoying! #spin15in15 #aprairiesunrisespins #rolagsbyruby #fiberarts 1w

aprairiesunrise Already so creative with her fiber art! I think we'll just keep going until there's enough for a proper rolag. It's going to be so fun to spin!! #RubyVerna #rolagsbyRuby #fiber365 1w
