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.

Walnut Super Skeiner is Super Gorgeous! 🥰 #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #Superskeiner #akerworks


@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 photo for the day. ❤️ #flower #flowersofinstagram #floralphotography #flowerphotography #stargazerlily #stargazer #lilyflower #flowerpetals #flowerpetal #floralphotography #flowersmakemehappy


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
