😍 Anyone else love when your coffee and spinning project matches?! 💚💛💚💛💚 Finally able to have a real coffee today, I was out of almond milk 😮 and drank my morning coffee black. Not my favorite. .

When I spin on my @akerworks Spindle Crane the spindle hangs off the crane and looks like a fun object to jump on for a spider. Had to tell Lucas that it wasn’t a good idea because then the spindle might stop spinning and it maybe even drop! Drop spindles are not bungee cords! #Akerworks #AkerworksMiniSpindle #Akerworksspindles #minispindle #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #woolgatherings #lucasthespider #jumpingspider #spidersofinstagram

Lucas the Spider helped me spin today. Jumping spiders may not spin silk for webs but they are very good at employing their silk as a dragline when they jump to act as a safety line. #Akerworks #AkerworksMiniSpindle #Akerworksspindles #minispindle #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #woolgatherings #lucasthespider #jumpingspider #spidersofinstagram
Here’s a good look at the storage of the @Akerworks Knitting Tool Kit once the Swatch Gauge is removed. There’s plenty of extra room for more notions. I’ve already added some more to mine including some colored stitch markers which look so fun viewed through the clear Swatch Gauge. 😄 #Akerworks #AkerworksKnittingToolKit #akerworksswatchgauge #swatchgauge #knittersofinstagram #igknitters #knittersofig #knitting #knitting_inspiration #instaknit #i_loveknitting
Here’s a closer view of the @akerworks Knitting Tool Kit. It’s so awesome how everything fits together. The design is absolute genius! Included in the full kit is an Akerworks Swatch Gauge, 2 built in large pockets with 2 needles, 10 stitch markers, two small empty pockets, scissors, tape measure, and a built in knitting needle gauge. The notions are magnetically held in place so they can’t fall out when the Swatch Gauge is removed. Absolutely love it! #Akerworks #AkerworksKnittingToolKit #akerworksswatchgauge #swatchgauge #knittersofinstagram #igknitters #knittersofig #knitting #knitting_inspiration #instaknit #i_loveknitting

SQUEE!!! Special delivery from the always amazing @akerworks!!!! This is the Akerworks Knitting Tool Kit. I'm always in awe over everything created by Akerworks and this is definitely above and beyond anything I had expected out of a knittion notions toolkit! I'm in awe over how well everything fits together and how there's still room to add in extra notions. I'll post two additional photos closer up of the tool kit after this set. Absolutely loved the packaging, it was like opening up a Christmas present. @j_akerman totally nailed it with the amazing design work for the wrap, super professional! #Akerworks #AkerworksKnittingToolKit #akerworksswatchgauge #swatchgauge #knittersofinstagram #igknitters #knittersofig #knitting #knitting_inspiration #instaknit #i_loveknitting

Started this gorgeous project during Tour de Fleece on my Wee Peggy. This is Malachite a blend of Black Shetland, Black Alpaca, and Mulberry Silk 33/33/33 by @homesteadhobbyist. Looking forward to getting back to this one in the New Year.  #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #Akerworks #WeePeggy #homesteadhobbyist #tinystudio #tinystudiobox #tinystudioprojectbox
Ready to ply up some big yardage.  Fiber is Elgin from @shepherdsheyfarm spin from flicked locks.

These Mini Spindles are so fun to spin and even more fun to photograph. I really need to make sure the next project isn’t heirloom carrot color as this is the second project now that looks like carrots. 😂 Delicious 15.5 micron Merino dyed by @woolgatherings.  #Akerworks #AkerworksMiniSpindle #Akerworksspindles #minispindle #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #woolgatherings

Just finished up the 4th spindle for this project and now onto the last one! It’s amazing how quickly this fiber spins up with this spindle. Beautiful 15.5 micron Merino dyed by @woolgatherings ❤️ #Akerworks #AkerworksMiniSpindle #Akerworksspindles #minispindle #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #woolgatherings
And now we have a sleeping pup at my feet and 2oz of Falkland 🐑 spun (colorway is Vivid Choosing). This is my first spin with @threewatersfarm and it’s so dreamy! I’ve had this in my stash for months (I *may* have a small TWF stash in progress) while I was waiting for my new wheel and it was very much worth the wait. ❤️

And we have gauge (close enough at least)! Size 3 needles means size 1  for the ribbing. I might have this done in another 7 months. 😂#knittersofinstagram #earlgreyfibercompany #akerworks #rosecardigan
My next oldest project is 15.5 micron Merino dyed by @woolgatherings that I started September of 2016 on @akerworks Mini Spindles. I only have about a spindle and a half left to complete this one. One of the few times something isn't in a Sistema container. This cute little box is from Daiso.  #Akerworks #AkerworksMiniSpindle #Akerworksspindles #minispindle #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #woolgatherings #tinystudiobox #tinystudio #tinystudioprojectbox

This year with the exception of Tour de Fleece I spent entirely all my spinning time focused on my projects for @plymagazine. Over the past week or so I’ve been putting together my planners for next year and thinking about what I’d like to accomplish next year. I made a list of all my spinning WIPS and some how despite all the time I spent not working on personal projects I’ve accumulated  7 spinning projects!!! And 5 of those are spindle projects! Not quite surehow that happened 😂 This is the oldest one started back in November of 2015. I love keeping my projects in these Sistema containers. Makes it easy to see the projects and keeps them protected when I’m not working on them. #Akerworks #AkerworksModularSpindle #Akerworksspindles #Geranium #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #woolgatherings #tinystudio #tinystudiobox #tinystudioprojectbox

Do you ever have days where it feels like all that REALLY matters are things like how perfectly your @akerworks bobbin in emerald green matches the powdercoat on your @questionableorigin Device? And how perfectly an Akerworks Butterfly Kate fits in to the Device case? Should I go the whole nine yards and spin up some Nickel? 😂 #matchymatchy  #spinnerproblems #questionableorigin #akerworks

Picked out my Christmas present today😳 and spent several hours on the hotel room re-learning how to spin on a wheel. This is my new Ashford Joy wheel. She has her own bag and three bobbins (though I’m already counting down the weeks until I can afford to upgrade to some #akerworks bobbins. Swipe right for my #firstyarn, all artistic and tangled, and then the bobbin with the second half of the fiber which is much better.  Thanks so much to #grandmasspinningwheel in #Tucson for helping me find my wheel, helping me jump over the learning curve, and the wonderful conversation...your stash is the best.

Amy @amyflorence has filled her bobbin with our colorway String of Flags! Looks great, don’t you think?! Amy is making a PLAN to spin down her stash in 2019! How about you?
・・・
So at the suggestion of @lalaknits - I have pulled out all of the spinning fibre I’ve accumulated from my three trips spent in Tennessee. I have 80oz (approx 2.2kg) that I want to spin by next SSK in July. So that’s about three braids a month. This is the first one for December - a colourful 2ply using some Polwarth from @threewatersfarm in the ‘String Of Flags’ colourway. I love how this has turned out.

Finally swatching this @jillmakesstuff Empire Yarn that has been a cake in waiting for over a year.  The cooler weather makes me break from my regular fine gauge knitting for warmer woolens.

Spun a wee bit of this last Saturday at guild. It's been so long since I've worked on this must have been sometime last year! I went to check out my notes and wow I started this project exactly 3 years ago as of tomorrow. It's taken me a wee bit to get used to the spindle as it's been so long since I've spun on one that was quite this heavy in terms of spindle + cop. The Geranium is one of my favorite Akerworks Modular Spindles. #Akerworks #AkerworksModularSpindle #Akerworksspindles #Geranium #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #woolgatherings

It's been so long since I've spun on this spin. It feels so great to get back to it again. I've got this spindle and one more to fill up before this project is done. The singles are so super fine.

Kids are in bed and now it’s time to spin some yarn! First up I’m going to finish spinning this and ply them together. The fiber is a mix of @helloyarn Shadows Parted and @helloyarn Pickle (and the pineapple lamp is from @nadeauparamus) #helloyarn #akerworks #akerworksbobbins #hansencraftsminispinner #handspun #wemakeyarn #spin15aday
My first attempt at weaving! We started it at #akerworks and I took it home to finish! It was a great way to get rid of all of our extra singles hanging around the shop! #handspun #spinnersofinstagram #weaving
Don’t eat the yarn, Tiggy! It’s cold out (and the shop’s heater’s misbehaving) so the scarf project just skipped way up the WIP priority list. But it’s at great risk of feline interference - I must stay vigilant!

Came home from Rhinebeck with so much spinning fiber and have ordered more since because I apparently have no self control. Trying to finish the current spin so I can start something new. Loving this one. Half the braid has been spun into a single and working on the second half. The bonus is that I can use one of my new Akerworks bobbins too! #schachtladybug #akerworks

While we're talking spindles 😁 here's some of last week's happy mail from the inimitable @akerworks ! I did say I was going to buy one of Adan's modular spindles to compare to the @bullsheepfibery Ultimate Spindle. I ended up buying two (both with large whorl and 12" shaft), and the comps are interesting. ■ I first bought the orange Geranium. To be honest I must tell you, it didn't spin very long at all and wobbled pretty badly. I spoke with Adan and decided to try some tweaking ideas he had. I found that approaching the hook from OVER the "petal," rather than from between it helped some, but it still needed something more. I also bent/adjusted the hook, which helped. It still didn't spin as well or as long as the Ultimate. It seemed to need more weight. I weighed the weights from each of those two spindles and found a substantial difference, so I came up with some additional weight that works great! I tucked a dime behind each weight! (Swipe to see the mod.) This is now how I keep my Geranium and it spins great. 😊 I can even approach the hook from between the petals. ■ I wasn't satisfied with this, though. I KNOW Adan makes great stuff and so I got to wondering if I was comparing apples to oranges (a lotus style to petal style). So, I ordered a Lotus from Akerworks. I was going to weigh the weights on that one, too, but never bothered; it spun beautifully right out of the box. ■ Conclusion: Both the Akerworks modular and the Bullsheepfibery Ultimates spin really well and I plan to buy more of both kinds. The Ultimate spins a little better, but the Akerworks (as usual) is huge and will hold much more fiber. The round or lotus style seems to spin better than the petal style.The Ultimate costs more, but IMHO is worth it, particularly because of the versatility of the weighting system. (Pics of the Ultimates are in my feed. Look for the red, blue, and purple spindles with ball bearing weights.) Happy spinning!

I was going to weigh the weights on that one, too, but never bothered; it spun beautifully right out of the box. ■ Conclusion: Both the Akerworks modular and the Bullsheepfibery Ultimates spin really well and I plan to buy more of both kinds. The Ultimate spins a little better, but the Akerworks (as usual) is huge and will hold much more fiber. The round or lotus style seems to spin better than the petal style.The Ultimate costs more, but IMHO is worth it, particularly because of the versatility of the weighting system. (Pics of the Ultimates are in my feed. Look for the red, blue, and purple spindles with ball bearing weights.)

Spinning some incredibly tiny yarn. Akerworks spindle. Love this thing! #dropspindle #akerworks #yarnthings
Finally, it was time to get out all of the @akerworks bobbins and get something on them! #handspun #spinnersofig #spinnersofinstagram #akerworks #louet #louetvictoria #corriedale
I took most of today off from school work and did a lot of fiber things. It was much needed. #threewatersfarm #twfoct18 #twfsweateralong18 #handspunyarn #bobbinshot #akerworks #akerworksbobbins #wemakeyarn
So, this little ball of fiber is BOTI. 😲#somuchfiber #abbysyarns #followthethread #questionableorigin #saff #akerworks @abbysyarns
So happy to have my @questionableorigin Device back with me after getting an update. Already took her for a spin - and I am loving the new controller! #thedevice01of12 #spinnersofinstagram #handspinning #makeyourownyarnanduseit #akerworks
I have been SO HAPPY with my initial purchase of Akerworks modular 3D printed spindles that I picked up another 12" shaft plus a 10" and the 8" mini spindle whirl plus an orifice hook with a cute butterfly charm. #spinning #spindles #dropspindle #akerworks #crafty #textiles

I tried to film a video for y'all today. I tried FIVE times. I was either interrupted, bothered by some technical difficulty, didn't check that I had things on screen, went way over my time goal, or something else every single time I tried to film. I'll try again tomorrow, but for now you get a bit of a sneak peek of my video subject and I get to sit here and spin!

Just finished plying this @woolhouseco batt! It is chain-plied, probably an aran/bulky weight. This also means I started my yak/merino spin! More on that to come. #spinning #handspun #merino #handspunyarn #yarnporn #spinnersofig #spinstagram #spinnersofinstagram #akerworks #wemakeyarn #spin15aday
Been handspinning for about 15 years, but I think this is the first time I've done a 2ply cotton.  #spinnersofinstagram #hansenminispinner #akerworks #organiccotton #handspunyarn
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.
