Towards the end of the sampler I was focusing more on my picks per inch and trying to get a better feel for how I should be beating to get the right ppi. I’m extremely pleased with how this turned out but know I’ll see a lot of improvements with more practice. #weaving #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #babymacomber #samplerweaving #floorloomweaver #floorloomweaving #jstonlineguild #janestaffordtextiles #janestaffordonlineguild


Love this pattern section!!!! This is the bottom side of the fabric. I love how different the patterns look on the opposite side. I’d definitely love to see more of this! #weaving #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #babymacomber #samplerweaving #floorloomweaver #floorloomweaving #jstonlineguild #janestaffordtextiles #janestaffordonlineguild


I’m so thankful I joined the #janestaffordonlineguild. I learned how to do this hemming on the loom and decided that’s what I’d do for the end of this piece and then went back and also did the beginning. It was really easy to do and looks so nice! #weaving #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #babymacomber #samplerweaving #floorloomweaver #floorloomweaving #jstonlineguild #janestaffordtextiles #janestaffordonlineguild


SQUEEE!!!! My first complex project on my Baby Mac is done!!! I started this project on August 29th and have been working on and off and on. I’ve learned so much throughout this project especially after I watched the first season of the #janestaffordonlineguild. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in store for the next adventure! #weaving #weaversofinstagram #weaversofig #babymacomber #samplerweaving #floorloomweaver #floorloomweaving #jstonlineguild #janestaffordtextiles #janestaffordonlineguild

A closer view of the UFO Supported Spindle by @longdrawjames. Spinning is going extremely well so far and looking forward to playing with something other than these white merino rolags I made 5 years ago for a different supported spindle. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #supportedspindle #spindlebowl


Having a lot of fun with the UFO Supported Spindle as well! I’m winding this one like I normally do with any of my spindles that wind onto the shaft. I’m a bit out of practice but it’ll take form nicely soon. I’m loving this secondary storage cop technique that Fleegle(Susan) uses. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #supportedspindle #spindlebowl


I wasn’t quite sure the best way to form a cop on this Supported Dealgan. My first instinct was to form a center pull like I do on traditional suspended Daelgans. The cop is forming nicely and the spindle continues to spin beautifully and easily. The spindle weighs 36.2g and so far the cop weighs 7.8g. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #supportedspindle #supporteddaelgan #spindlebowl


I’ve only been spinning with this spindle for 3 days and I can already tell it’s the perfect spindle for me. Both of the spindles I got from @longdrawjames are everything I had hoped they would be and now I foresee a lot more long draw spinning in my future both on wheels and support spindles. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #supportedspindle #supporteddaelgan #spindlebowl

An update for my Ravelry Theme is now live! This update includes fixes for font size and spacing adjustment, tones down some black lines, removes a new cyan hover, and includes a visibility update for Herdwick. As always if you spot anything that needs more fixing please let me know. ❤️ #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


The last gorgeous fibery surprise in the box from @longdrawjames was this beautiful British Polwarth that’s already scoured and ready to be combed. It’s stunning! #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #polwarth #britishpolwarth


A gorgeous surprise from @longdrawjames. This is hand dyed silk brick. He sent me a wee sample of it to play with and I have a grand idea of blending it with Black Llama from Judith MacKenzie, Humbug Merino, Carbonized Bamboo, and Red Eri. I’m not sure how I’ll want to spin it up whether I’ll create roving which was my original idea of perhaps form rolags to spin on my new spindles. Decisions decisions... Anywho! He decided to send me the whole lot of it! It’s incredibly gorgeous and it’s going to be beautiful in the blend and I may need to spin some by itself! #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #silk #silkbrick


In addition to the gorgeous spindles that arrived from @longdrawjames I also got some beautiful fiber. This Wensleydale was dyed by James and is destined to become some 2 ply lace for weaving in combination with the dark gray/gray Wensleydale he sent earlier this year. I’ve not spun Wensleydale before so I’m looking forward to spinning it and sorting out how I want to weave with it. It’ll be a lot of fun! #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #wensleydale #wensleydalesheep


I’m absolutely loving this supported Daelgan by @longdrawjames. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #spin15aday #supportedspindle #supporteddaelgan #spindlebowl
