Can't wait to ply up this rainbow tomorrow! #akerworks #threefeetofsheep #handspun #spinnersofinstagram #rainbowyarn
The magnet on this #akerworks #butterflykate is really handy.
10 ounces of “Hummingbird” gradient on 70/30 Polwarth/silk from Fiber Artemis, and 4 oz “Merry Poppies” on Merino/Superwash Merino/Tussah from @threewatersfarm .

Spinception: don’t most designers come to a book signing and end up trying out an e-spinner? Karen Whooley took the shop’s floor model of the Device for a test drive during our spin-in today and was super-impressed by the portability, the range of capabilities, and how almost immediately consistent her singles were. (Interested? Just ask Lindsey the next time you’re in! It only takes us a couple of minutes to set it up and get it ready to go for demos.)

I’ve been trying to focus on things that make me happy. I’ve been hoarding this “Hummingbird” gradient from Fiber Artemis for a while, but I’m now spinning it for warp. My new bag from @chickenbootsusa is holding the entire project in one place, and it’s making me happy as I spin.

This modular Akerworks spindle system is even better than I thought: There's a hook which can be covered, it can be top or bottom whorl, plus the various size/weights of whorls. Look how many DIFFERENT spindle shapes I can make with ONE shaft. #spinning #DropSpindle #Akerworks #crafty

My #spinzilla2018 progress and results. Only one braid got spun, but I’d consider that a success!

On the right is my new #akerworks Large whorl spindle. On the left is one of the Mini-Spindles. They make me smile. #akerworksspindles #akerworksminispindle
Absolutely adore the new tags sewn into the mesh bags as well as the AkerKate bags. The tags are laser etched and the pop of color is so pretty. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #Akerworks #AkerworksModularSpindle #AkerworksLotus
SQUEEE!!!!! An extremely awesome package arrived from @akerworks! The brand new Lotus whorls are gorgeous and the brand new bag is so cool with its snazzy red accents especially the new tags which are laser etched! Thanks Adan and the team, for the wonderful package! #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #Akerworks #AkerworksModularSpindle #AkerworksLotus
My Spinzilla finishes. About 6 ounces total. The one on the left is a chain ply, and I’m expecting about 400 yards of fingering. The one on the left is a two-ply and I’m expecting about 250 yards of light fingering. Magical special Spinzilla math would indicate I definitely passed the goal of one mile. I’ll wind, measure, wash, and thwack them tomorrow after I get home from class.

Lots of fun today spinning with the @makeat140 Sunday morning knitting group, followed by bumping into my friend @ktc.518 who was participating in Make’s arm knitting workshop. #spinning #spinnersofinstagram #akerworks #armknitting #armknittingblanket #hansencrafts #hansencraftsminispinner

My pocketful of fluffy fun on the way into today’s Guild meeting, then swipe for a shot of the spin in progress. Today I was enjoying this set up in low whorl mode - works better for seated spinning, I think. Anyone up for a toddler haircut? ‘Cause that’s where I’m headed next. It’s a coin toss whether this’ll be calm or traumatic.

I may have set my goal yardage a little high, but falling short won't be from a lack of effort.

Dewy delights! We had a super cool foggy morning here in Knoxville, giving us some extra dewy grass around the shop. Here’s a little spindle bouquet - also to show that we’re not just “all-Lotus-all-the-time,” that our oldie-but-goodie Geranium styles got a redesign as well. These new integrated hub whorls are sweet, just somehow a little more like themselves than were the previous versions.

What’s this?? A visiting wheel? 😄🌀💕 It’s been silent this week because we’ve had some special company! I finally got to meet my lovely friend @classysquidfiberco in person after years of kindred spiriting it up. 💗 Amanda and her husband have spent the summer making their way around the country on a super epic road-trip and you should definitely check out @alpacainstitute if you want a peek at their adventures! Super awesome. 🚌🏞🎉 They were able to spend a few days with us right at the end of their journey and it was such a delightful time! Swipe for smiling friends and a very confused doggo. We tried to get her to look at the camera but the self timer function just did not compute... 😂📸🐕 Thanks for making us one of your stops, guys! Great memories made. 💞 #bestfiberfriends #craftyfriendsarethebest #classysquidfiberco

Decided to attempt my first single yarn! This is a merino silk from #spunkyeclectic fiber club 2017...or 2016? Gorgeous, anyhow! 😃 #handspunyarn #igyarnmaker #igyarnspinners #handspunyarn #handmadeisbetter #akerworks #schachtladybug

Spindle photos should be more glamorous than this, I know, with fewer garbage cans and vacuum cords in the shot... but we were having too much fun to stop and pose it properly :-) This was low whorl spinning with a Medium Lotus whorl on an 8” shaft, super stable and just spins all day long.

This arrived in the post today. It's an Akerworks 3D printed bobbin for my Kiwi spinning wheel. Nice and light, works brilliantly and as you can see on photo 2 it's really easy to see your bobbin filling up. #akerworks , #akerworksbobbins , #shetlandtops , #spinnersofinstagram , #ashfordspinningwheel , #ashfordkiwi , #shetlandwoolbrokerstops, #jamiesonandsmith
Only 100g left to spin on my 600g combo spin 😁 I’ve been working on this for over a year at this point, which is ridiculous. It’s the kind of thing I don’t think I have time for so I never sit down to it. But even 30 minutes here and there is enough for progress 💕

This is a week of some Very Exciting News.... we are now officially a dealership for The Device by @questionableorigin ! This e-spinner, developed in conjunction with @abbysyarns , is phenomenally versatile, quiet, portable, and functional. Been curious about how it works? Or how easy it is to set up/break down? Or anything else? Swing by and check it out in person - and if you’ve had your eyes on one and order soon, you could even have it for the holidays (or St. Distaff’s Day... or Madrona 2019...) Swipe to see the interior as it packs up, then again to see Lindsey set it up in a time-lapse video.

Is it still #extremespinning if all you're doing is walking in nature?
Spinzilla begins at midnight, so I’m arming myself with the first braid I’ll be tackling in my annual quest to spin a mile of yarn. Definitely gonna chain ply this one in order to preserve the color groupings. This is from @nerdgirlyarns on her merino/bamboo/nylon base in the colorway “Looking Through a Telescope”. For now though, I gotta try to finish the single I’ve currently got in the wheel so I feel less guilty about setting it aside unfinished at midnight. #spinning #spinnersofinstagram #spin #spinners #wip #sip #operationfinishallthethings #schachtspinners #schachtladybug #spinster #spinner #spinstersofinstagram #spinnersofig #spinstersofig #froghair #spinzilla #spinzilla2018 #agoodyarnsarasota #purldivers #handspinning #spinstagram #handspinner #handspinners #handspun #handspunstagram #handspinnersofig #spin #spin15aday2018challenge #akerworks #schactsidekick #nerdgirlyarns

On Friday @critterknits gave me an early birthday gift of some beautiful BFL fiber from @mishasobsessions and I felt inspired to do a little spinning yesterday! I spun the first bobbin in the background and I remembered that I had some coordinating fiber. When I took @frostyarn spinning class and carding bar in July she made beautiful Frida Kahlo batts. I spun that up and I will ply them together (bobbin in front). The Frida batt is sparkly with all the beautiful add ins that @frostyarn includes! If you swipe you can see photos of the fiber and batt before I spun them. Stay tuned for the finished yarn! #handspunyarn #wemakeyarn #hansencraftsminispinner #akerworks #titsoutcollective #mishasobsessions #frostyarn

Sometimes I try new tools even though I’m not sure how much I’ll use them. The distaff I shared a couple days ago is one and the @akerworks Butterfly Kates are another. I just love them! Also, almost done plying this project! 🎊

A little bit of Moonrover in my life. Chain plied and will be a fingering weight yarn. Haven’t wound off or washed to find exact yardage yet. Looking to do a colorwork sweater with this beautiful yarn!

Combo spin complete!  1,370 yards of ultimate squishiness.  I'm thrilled with the tight, fat ply which should help protect these softer fibers from abrasion in the sweater I have planned.  Next up, a soak and a second steam, then swatching!  #combospin #combospinsalkal #akerworks #bobbinsup #hansenminispinner
Nice Autumn spin. I dyed this Cormo and couldn't wait to spin it. I LOVE ❤❤Cormo!

Every time I use Malabrigo Nube I fall in love with it all over again and wonder why I don’t use it way more often. I’ve tried maaany sources for 100% merino fiber and none of them create a single for me quite like Nube. It’s got such a... marshmallow-y draft if that makes any descriptive sense at all. 🤔😝 The singles created can be smooth and dense (as is my preference), but they also manage to still be puffy somehow. And in a very specific way unlike any other fiber I’ve spun. Also this Plomo colorway is such a lovely and exciting neutral! ... Aaanyways. I’ll stop going on and on, but seriously. LOVE this stuff. 😆😂💘🌀🐑 #malabrigonubeappreciationpost #mondayspunday #spinningWIP
.
Edited to address the one con I can think of - I have had a few issues with braids arriving slightly felted in parts in the past, but it’s been probably 3-4 years since the last time that’s happened to me personally. Seems like they’re taking much better care now! 💕

I understand I’m not the typical spinner. I struggle making heavier weight yarns. I’m trying to spin a consistent single here, but it is hard. #igyarnspinners #igyarnmaker #handspunyarn #schachtladybug #akerworks
Just discovered the @akerworks Butterfly Kates fit perfectly in my little basket I have on my Jensen. Basket contains 2 BKs, a control card, oil, and beautiful orifice hook from @symonangel - everything a spinner needs in one neat little spot!

Day 11 • #sewphotohop • The creative process • My creative process lately has been inspired by working backwards from materials, to projects. Limiting the materials or working with my stash has brought so many new ideas that I would not have otherwise thought of. You might not think that limiting materials would bring creativity but it really has for me. 😉 I also find that working across multiple mediums has brought inspiration to my creative process as well. From knitting to sewing to spinning wool, each element intersects the other to bring inspiration and a continual push for me, creatively. ❤️🐑✂️ @houseofpinheiro #sewphotohop2018 #oakbluedesigns

Monday Mood: Indecisive Edition. 🤔💭 Second bobbin... done! But should I add another single to make this a 3-ply? I can’t tell if that greyish Nube will mute things down too much or actually ADD some nice contrast for the brights to pop. Hmmm... I’ve had it go both ways before! 🤷🏻‍♀️ The other factor is that adding another ply would probably make the final yarn a solid DK/worsted weight which I would be pretty happy about. Choices choices! 🌀💕 #doublebobbinshot #spinningWIP #mondayspunday

I’m loving this so much more plyed than I did in the singles (which was still a lot!). These singles are fine, and this plying is taking a while; I’m just soaking it in.  While watching Deadpool 2. 😝

Taking smart breaks is important.  This afternoon I'm spinning & listening to an audiobook before I dive deep into pattern writing revisions. Fiber by #helloyarn (Shetland wool top, colour Fife, Feb 2016 club--I traded something with a good friend for it, the colours are gorgeous). Bobbin by #akerworks. Wheel is a #spinolution queen bee (I'm the third keeper of this wheel I believe we've been together for a while now). And as always I refer to my #goalbook for notes on how I want to make this yarn (chain ply).

Happiness is when your new @akerworks bobbins show up the same day as your club fiber from @intothewhirled 🎉💃🏻 The latter will not be shown as to keep the surprise for other club members! But all the 😍! . . #akerworks  #spinnersofinstagram 
Well this was a fun ply! 🌀🎉 Both fibers were actually relatively soft in color except for the one braid having a couple runs of bright yellow. Together they ended up became something pretty striking! 🤩 And while I don’t really intend to spin yarn at this speed again, it’s interesting to see how significantly less time spent resulted in two sloppy singles that actually balanced themselves out quite well overall! I think this yarn will be perfect for my inevitable autumn vibes cast on that will be taking place in a few weeks here... 😁😍🍂 #soonmypretty #bobbinshot #plyingyarn

This is my favorite yarn spun so far! It spun up exactly as I planned and plied exactly the way I wanted (I usually under-ply). Merino/Black tencel dyed by @dandelions_daisies , spun on my #schachtladybug 🐞 with an #akerworks bobbin. I learn a lot from @welfordpurls and am inspired by @shelleymorales . 😃 #igyarnspinners #igyarnmaker #handspunyarn #stashdash2018 #dandelionsanddaisies
I think two 4oz braids spun up in two evenings might be a speed record for me. Those are pretty thin singles too! 😂🌀💦 I wanted to put my weekend wheel repairs through their paces and they’ve definitely passed the test now. Time to ply! Aw yiss. 🤩 I’m especially looking forward to the stretch of bright yellow that’s hidden within that back bobbin. It’s a pretty wild Wednesday over here, guys... 😜😂🎉 #doublebobbinshot #wednesdayWIP #plyingtime

Here’s the hand carded wool from yesterday, all spun up! I had an image of a particular yarn in mind, and it turned out exactly how I expected. The only negative is that there were a lot of short cuts and waste in both wools, so I had a lot of breaks in my single while spinning. I think I’ll just make a large batt on my drumcarder next time, so the fibers are more aligned and stretched out. But, I love this! I think it’ll make a beautifully lofty hat. 🐑💗 #handspun #yarn #Spinning #Merino #beaverslidedrygoods #corriedale #sheep #wool #fiber #akerworks #akerworksbobbin #hansencraftsminispinner #walnut #tdf2018 #tourdefleece2018
