Day 2 of Tour de Fleece: spun a tiny bit on my Jenkins Turkish Delight. Fiber is from @hipstrings for the #base12sal. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #TeamAkerworks2020 #tourdefleece #tourdefleece2020 #tdf2020 #akerworks #3dprinting #teedeehedgie #teamjenkins #jenkinsspindles #turkishspindle #hipstrings #teamjenkins2020


Day 2 of Tour de Fleece: My long draw spinning is ok but it takes me so much more work, concentration, and time to get it this decent in comparison to my worsted spinning. Fiber is Stained Glass and Pitch on Camel/Silk 50/50 by @spottedewefibers. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #TeamAkerworks2020 #teamdaedalus2020 #tourdefleece #tourdefleece2020 #tdf2020 #akerworks #3dprinting #teedeehedgie #spottedewefibers #starlingspinner #starlingxl


Day 2 of Tour de Fleece: so um yea those Hedgies are totally how I feel right now. I was so excited about this project but it’s not going as well as I had hoped. The hand cards are absolutely wonderful but the dowel rods I sanded are just not smooth enough even after going from about 150 grit to 3,000 grit. The silk latches on and I can’t free the rolags from them smoothly like I can with my wool rolags. The combination of my bad rolags and my bad long draw skills is making me feel very discouraged and my right arm/wrist is now cranky. This project will be put on hold until I can sort out how to do this better. ☹️ Fiber is Stained Glass and Pitch on Camel/Silk 50/50 by @spottedewefibers. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #TeamAkerworks2020 #teamdaedalus2020 #tourdefleece #tourdefleece2020 #tdf2020 #akerworks #3dprinting #teedeehedgie #spottedewefibers #starlingspinner #starlingxl


This version brings the Classic Logo onto the theme. My hope is that with the logo being on the Ravelry Server via my Project page that this will grab attention behind the scenes. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #knittersofinstagram #crochetersofinstagram #weaversofinstagram #ravelry #newravelrydesign #knittersofravelry #ravelrycrochet #ravelrydesigner #ravelrydesigners #ravelryupdate #ravelryknitter #ravelryknitters #crochetersofravelry

Day 1 of Tour de Fleece: SQUEEEEE!!!!! My brand new @clemesandclemes Cotton Hand Carders arrived just in time to start this project. The fiber is 50/50 Camel/Silk. It’s going to try my patience for sure as long draw is way out of my comfort zone. I’m looking forward to improving!

I divided up my Flag Green for matchy sock spinning. I love the way the braid changes when I do this. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #TeamAkerworks2020 #teamdaedalus2020 #twftdf2020 #tourdefleece #tourdefleece2020 #tdf2020 #akerworks #3dprinting #teedeehedgie #threewatersfarm #twfjun20 #magpiespinner #daedalusmagpie

I’m running so far behind on my Tour de Fleece planning this year. I finally have my planner all together. Next year I’m wanting to make my TdF planners for sale if anyone is interested. ๐Ÿ’› #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #TeamAkerworks2020 #teamdaedalus2020 #twftdf2020 #tourdefleece #tourdefleece2020 #tdf2020 #akerworks #3dprinting #teedeehedgie #spottedewefibers #threewatersfarm #twfjun20


Oh yea.... I really need to finish my @hipstrings #base12sal and my @inglenookfibers Advent. I’m planning on working on these size spindles for Team Jenkins. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #TeamAkerworks2020 #tourdefleece #tourdefleece2020 #tdf2020 #akerworks #3dprinting #teedeehedgie #teamjenkins #jenkinsspindles #turkishspindle #hipstrings #inglenookfibers


Here’s my plans for Magpie. A pound of Superwash Merino/Nylon in the colorways Capture the Flag, Flag Violet, and Flag Green dyed by @threewatersfarm. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #TeamAkerworks2020 #teamdaedalus2020 #twftdf2020 #tourdefleece #tourdefleece2020 #tdf2020 #akerworks #3dprinting #teedeehedgie #threewatersfarm #twfjun20 #magpiespinner #daedalusmagpie

I’m trying my best to reach out to as many people as possible in hopes that my Theme can help them access the new Ravelry better. My Theme brings back a lot of Classic Ravelry that helps make the site easier to look at but keeps all the new UI menus and such. Unfortunately with the lack of the feedback forum threads I can’t reach out as easy and now I’m trying to find other means. Please feel free to repost and share this anywhere and everywhere so we can help more people together. Ravelry theme can be found in my Profile Link on IG. ❤️ #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #knittersofinstagram #crochetersofinstagram #weaversofinstagram #ravelry


I’m back with more updates! In V1.9 I fixed up the Login page including making the animation static. I checked the page today to share a screenshot with you all and noticed that the page now has a Play button in the bottom left corner. The animation for this page has been officially stopped!!!! It appears it will only be animated if you push the play button. ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ In light of this I’ve returned the clouds(V2.0) as I had to remove them completely due to not being able to figure out how to nail them down. ๐Ÿคฃ I know many of us have been frustrated but things are looking a little bit better. Here’s hoping for continued progress. ❤️ #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #ravelry

Here’s Starla with her upgrades. She’s looking mighty fancy! I love my wheels so much. ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #spottedewefibers #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #starlingspinner #daedalusspinningwheels #starlingmini


Starla and Bumbles got an UPGRADE!!!!! It’s all purely cosmetic. Upgrade includes new style face(no longer houses electronics), puffy rounded tension knob, tension pivots on carbon tubes, flyer hooks, and motor wires are now covered with a mesh sleeve. I’m so extremely excited about these updates. They look like brand new birds! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #spottedewefibers #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #starlingspinner #daedalusspinningwheels #starlingmini #starlingxl


Oooo what am I doing?!?!? Stay tuned! (No Starla isn’t broken, she’s been disassembled intentionally) ❤️ #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #spottedewefibers #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #starlingspinner #daedalusspinningwheels #starlingmini
