82  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Dremel Powered Spindle Spinning Wheel W/ Start Of Yarn on: October 01, 2007 11:31:53 AM
So.. I've been lurking in the spinning area for a while drooling over all the gorgeous yarns that I've been seeing.  This is my first post.  I've been wanting to spin my own for some time now. So, I decided to try drop spinning first to see if I like it.  I made my own drop spindle and started to spin yarn.  My hubby was watching the process and mentioned that I would get tired of it really fast.  (he knows that I'm the type of person that needs things to go more quickly) And, I had a hard time keeping the spindle spinning while learning to draft at the same time. So, he made me a dremel powered spindle spinning wheel!!    It still needs some tweaking, but today I made my some yarn!! I'm so excited about this spindle.  It's making beautiful yarn and much quicker that doing it with a drop spindle.   I'll post more pics of the yarn after I finish it.  I still have a lot more to make.  I'm so excited and happy!!!  Anyways... on to the pictures.

So pretty!!  I can't wait to see it all done.  I'm thinking I'm going to make a headband, or some short fingerless gloves.

Two wheels were used to slow down the dremel power.  It was way to fast.

The dremel is plugged into a power strip so I can turn the dremel on and off easily.  (I'm pretty clumsy and get flustered when it gets going to fast, so a button to turn it on and off is much easier)

** I hope I've put this in the right place. It's not technically a finished project yet, and I thought I might do up a tut on making one if anyone is interested.
