8311  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Linseed oil on moving parts of wheel? on: April 09, 2009 04:42:35 PM
heh.  so While in the "city",  I go to the pharmacy and ask them to point me to the mineral oil.  And lo and behold, Mineral is BABY OIL!!!!  well.  "Flah" I said,  "I have that sitting in my medicine cabinet."  and this long week itchin' to spin, but couldn't because I  needed to oil my wheel, and I have what I need in my house.  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
Anyway.  happy to find I have a life time supply of just what I need in my house and now no time to spin in the next 4 days.  Le sigh.

Anyway thank you all again,  All of your responses have been wonderfully helpful.  I have learned a lot about the different types of oils!

my day actually started quite terribly.  My son (4 yrs) woke up at 6 am and screamed for a very long time (like until 1)  But then my hubby came home and took over refinishing the table. and he brought with him a swap package!  so  It went well after all that! XD   How was your day Illusions?

I've yet to encounter fiber snobbery.  everyone has been so kind and helpful.   I'm self taught, with pretty much no help.  I put wool to the wheel and went to town.   I think I'm going to google fiber festival and see if there are any near me.... all this talk of fiber fests and guilds makes me wish there was more then just me spinning up here.  there must be, but I've yet to hear of anyone.

So I figured the cupcake pillow would take me a night or two, but then I decided to go ahead and embellish it further..... LOL  I really hope you like it Puffy!!!

OMG  WD-40 will turn into super glue??!?!?!?!  yikes. 
 I still haven't  oiled my wheel, because I've yet to find anything that is suitable her in my tiny town.  But I will be taking a trip to the "city" on thursday, so I'll buy some then and hopefully get back at the wheel then!
