I couldn’t get all the photos together on one post so here’s the last one for the gorgeous sample cards I ordered from @janestaffordtextiles. I’m amazed at all the beautiful colors. #jstonlineguild #janestaffordtextiles #janestaffordonlineguild #yarnstash #yarn #weavingyarns #jstyarns #cotton #yarnstash #jstsamplecards


As a new weaver I thought it’d be a good idea and splurge a bit on this gorgeous set of sample cards from @janestaffordtextiles. I wanted to see not only the variety of colors but also to be able to see the different sizes of yarns and be able to feel all the different fibers and textures. Everything is so beautiful in its own way. #jstonlineguild #janestaffordtextiles #janestaffordonlineguild #yarnstash #yarn #weavingyarns #jstyarns #organiclinen #organicyarn #organiccotton #yarnstash #weavingsilk #woolyarn #jstsamplecards


I also picked up this kit from @janestaffordtextiles as these are totally my colors and I’m wanting to explore the difference between boucle, 8/2, and 8/4 for towels. #jstonlineguild #janestaffordtextiles #janestaffordonlineguild #weavingdesign #4shafts #4shaftloom #igweavers #weaversofinstagram #learntoweave #weavinglesson #4harnessloom #yarnstash #yarn #weavingyarns #jstyarns #jstkits #plainweave #bouclecotton


I’ve been falling down the dangerous never ending rabbit hole of weaving over the past month. A lot and I do be A LOT of people highly recommend I check out the @janestaffordtextiles guild so I went ahead and signed up last week and have spent the past week watching Season One while I’ve been spinning my yarns for @plymagazine. I have thoroughly enjoyed every episode and cannot wait to get back to weaving again once I get a few priorities out of the way. I ended up picking up a few things during the Back to the Loom Sale. This Shadow Weave Kit I was immediately captivated by with the beautiful patterns and how the colors played out. I’m looking forward to watching the episode on this and giving it a go! #jstonlineguild #janestaffordtextiles #janestaffordonlineguild #shadowweave #weavingdesign #weavinglesson #4shafts #4shaftloom #twills #igweavers #weaversofinstagram #learntoweave #weavinglesson #twills #4harnessloom #jstkits

Closest viewing of the cotton I spun on Magpie. This was for a 10 gram longest thread challenge for Team Daedalus. I managed 70.5 yards of chain ply for a total of 211.5 total yards. Not the best yardage but I think it’s likely a personal best for me for yardage. I’m excited for when @daedalusspinningwheels will have the final version of the Ultra flyer ready for Magpie as I have a lot of gorgeous dyed cotton from @longdrawjames to spin. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #teamdaedalus2020 #tourdefleece #tourdefleece2020 #tdf2020 #3dprinting #spottedewefibers #magpiespinner #daedalusmagpie #spinningcotton #cottonspinning #seaislandcotton


The tiny 10g skein of cotton spun on Magpie. This is 70.5 yards of chain ply for a total of 211.5 yards of singles. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #teamdaedalus2020 #tourdefleece #tourdefleece2020 #tdf2020 #3dprinting #spottedewefibers #magpiespinner #daedalusmagpie #spinningcotton #cottonspinning #seaislandcotton


I chain plied the cotton that was spun on Magpie onto Starla the Starling Mini. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #teamdaedalus2020 #tourdefleece #tourdefleece2020 #tdf2020 #3dprinting #spottedewefibers #magpiespinner #daedalusmagpie #spinningcotton #cottonspinning #seaislandcotton


A closer view of my Sea Island cotton spin on the Magpie with the Ultra V1 Flyer. This was spun at only 42% speed. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #teamdaedalus2020 #tourdefleece #tourdefleece2020 #tdf2020 #3dprinting #spottedewefibers #magpiespinner #daedalusmagpie #spinningcotton #cottonspinning #seaislandcotton


I fell of the Tour de Fleece PT 2 wagon due to a change in priorities. This was my last spin for the event. It was part of the longest thread 10g challenge on Team Daedalus. I achieved a 70.5 yards chain plied yarn with a total of 211.5 yards. Not the best yardage but likely my own personal best. This was spun on my Magpie with the Ultra V1 flyer at 42% speed. I don’t know how @longdrawjames manages faster speeds... I swear he’s magic. 🤣 more photos to follow! #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #teamdaedalus2020 #tourdefleece #tourdefleece2020 #tdf2020 #3dprinting #spottedewefibers #magpiespinner #daedalusmagpie #spinningcotton #cottonspinning #seaislandcotton

This Walnut Super Skeiner is everything I had hoped for. The darker wood is so gorgeous and makes the yarn colors pop.

@akerworks has been throwing some major hints to something new that will be added to the shop hopefully soon. Adan knew that as soon as they ventured out into the other woods for the Super Skeiner that I would have to have one in Walnut. It’s absolutely freaking GORGEOUS!!!!!! #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #Superskeiner #akerkate #butterflykate #akerworks

Last weaving photo for the day and one of my favorites. This angle is so much fun! 🥰 #weaving #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #babymacomber #samplerweaving #floorloomweaver #floorloomweaving


It’s so much fun finding angles to photograph this project. This one was tricky as my strobe can’t go as low as I’d like to light the shot. #weaving #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #babymacomber #samplerweaving #floorloomweaver #floorloomweaving


Today’s progress on the sampler. This one was a lot of fun. Only one more pattern after this and then experimental time with the rest of the warp. #weaving #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #babymacomber #samplerweaving #floorloomweaver #floorloomweaving


Tuesday/Wednesday’s progress on my sampler. I started using iWeaveit which has helped a ton at keeping track of where I am in the draft. #weaving #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #babymacomber #samplerweaving #floorloomweaver #floorloomweaving

Updates have been far and few between but rest assured I’m still ensuring it works in tip top shape! An issue arose with some changes the officials made with color codes that took priority over my theme resulting in the inability to see the stash navigation. It took me a bit to figure out how to bypass this but it’s all good now. Should you see any other wonkiness with odd colors or perhaps text gone missing please let me know right away. #ravelry #ravelrypro #ravelryaccessibility #ravelrydesigner #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #knittersofinstagram #crochetersofinstagram #weaversofinstagram #newravelrydesign #knittersofravelry #ravelrycrochet #ravelrydesigner #ravelrydesigners #ravelryupdate #ravelryknitter #ravelryknitters #crochetersofravelry

Halfway through pattern three in this sampler. Oh my goodness this one gave me a run for my money! It’s a 24 row repeat and I got lost a few times along the way. I have one more repeat of this to go and then onto the next pattern! #weaving #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #babymacomber #samplerweaving #floorloomweaver #floorloomweaving

Second pattern of this sampler is done! I loved this second pattern. It was a lot of fun and amazing seeing how just a change in the order you treadle changes how the pattern plays out. Onto pattern three! #weaving #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #babymacomber #samplerweaving #floorloomweaver #floorloomweaving


I love seeing the fabric as it goes over the front beam. ❤️ #weaving #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #babymacomber #samplerweaving #floorloomweaver #floorloomweaving #twill #twillweaving #weavingtwill


Working through the second pattern for this sampler. This makes me so happy!!!!!! ❤️ #weaving #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #babymacomber #samplerweaving #floorloomweaver #floorloomweaving #twill #twillweaving #weavingtwill


Day two of weaving this awesome sampler I picked up from @yarnbarnks. I am having soooooooo much FUN!!!!! All of the progress made today was during @charansachar’s livestream this morning. Yarn is 3/2 perle cotton from @websyarn.

It has been a lot of fun seeing all the guesses come in for how much the yarn weighed that I packed onto a single Magpie Standard bobbin. Dave estimated that this bobbin could hold somewhere around 18-20 oz. When I started spinning on the Magpie for the TinyStudio Creative Life Magazine Review I planned out enough projects to meet this estimate and had a few backup projects to add on just in case I had exceeded it. I was in awe over just how much I was able to fit on this bobbin. Braid after braid this wheel showed no restraint and it felt like it was the never-ending bobbin as I had to keep digging out more and more in hopes of finally meeting the outer edge of the bobbin whorl. I ended up fitting a grand total of 781.31g(27.56oz) onto the one Standard bobbin. I am in awe and still very much in disbelief that all of this once fit on just a single bobbin. I'm eager to fill another bobbin full! Our closest guess was @cashmereannie. She guessed 27.6oz! She wins a 1-year tinyStudio Subscription along with some sweet loot from @daedalusspinningwheels and @spottedewefibers . We will also be awarding two runner-ups Marie Clews and Tineke Uit Den Boogaard with a copy of Issue 8. Thank you so much for everyone who entered this contest!
