#DailySpindle This is a spindle I made from "Baumarkt" materials that have cost maybe 2 Euros. It's a toywheel and a wooden stick and a cuphook that I bent to make the spindle spin better.
The shaft is really long, I used to make super long spindles but today I prefer a bit shorter sticks. Maybe I will shorten it soon. I painted a triskele on it with cheap paints.
It spins very very well and I really love it.

Do you have friends that disappear into a bubble with their partner?
Keep contacting them. They might need it more than it looks like.

the first one is made from (I think) plum tree (whorl) and bamboo (shaft). I got it from a ravelry user named Kiki. Her granddad turned it (clearly inspired by Bosworth spindles). it was in 2009, when only few spindlecrafters existed in germany and they could not meet the demand, at all.
She is an optician and made the hook from the stuff she makes glasses with. Great hook! Very few of those exist. I was super lucky to get one.
tbh I just wanted to test out the new poll feature! :D
It looks nice so far!
I'm indeed going to show you ALL THE spindles, but I won't spam you, I'll do it like this: I will try to post a "daily spindle" and tell the story of one of them per day.
and I'll tag it #dailyspindle if you want to mute it.
if anyone wants to join the hashtag: feel very welcome.
I'm missing my #knitting group tonight, because I worked longer than expected and tomorrow I have to work early again, and I have to do some stuff at home, too.
but if all goes well, I will go on my first cycling tour on friday and saturday! I don't know where I'm going yet..
#AprilArtJourney I decided to add some more fountain pen scribbly lines and circles and now I really love it!

#AprilArtJourney you know what? this semi-miserable sketch I did yesterday.. it's not lost at all! (It's not that miserable, I actually like it, even though I know I could do better if I practiced more)
I'll just declare it "the Chariot" and count it in for today. so here's my chariot. :)
Today I had an idea to draw "the Empress" which is a portrait of the Youtuber Treacle Tatts, I really like her stuff.
She's sometimes has the most colorful blue and green hair and her makeup is much more colorful than how I could paint it.
She's sitting at her laptop doing a reaction video and I tried to sketch her from the video and not from a video still.
todays #AprilArtJourney card is "2 of swords" http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/project/4/02_swords.shtml

Also People of Color that do fiber arts of any sort, please holler out! also autistics that one of their obsessions are fiber arts :D
Throughout my life I've sewn, quilted, knitted, crocheted, and spun yarn! The latter is my favorite thing ever really but I haven't done it in years. Gonna get into making patches soon with an embroidery machine which is like EXCITE!
