i haven't posted in soooo long. i hadn't even spun anything in ages because i've been so busy, but when i got a new wheel at rhinebeck, i couldn't resist getting something on the bobbin.


laceweight merino yarn from handpainted top. it's about 554 yards, and 20 wpi. i'm so happy with it because i could never go this thin on my louet kit.

i put mine in my very warm, poorly ventilated closet. it's so warm and stuffy in there, the roving dries in no time. of course, i squeeze it out REALLY well, then put it in a towel and stomp a lot of the excess water out before it goes into the closet, but that's been the best drying place i've found in my apartment Cheesy
5  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: R H Lindsay...are they really that bad? Anyone have a good experience? on: June 13, 2007 02:59:23 PM
i've never had a problem with them and i've been ordering from them for almost 2 years now. i've heard bad things about them as well, but the service has been great for me and i'm not going to stop using them.

i order, receive the receipt by email, and usually in 5 business days my wool is at my doorstep. my billing address is different from my shipping address, and when i had a problem with not receiving a receipt, i emailed them to request another and that arrived the same week.

all of their products have been of excellent quality EXCEPT the mohair locks which had moths. other than that, i've been extremely pleased.

i'll be there on saturday with inhope, probably arriving between 1-2. feel free to say hi if you see me Smiley
8  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: What are people's favorite fiber blends?? on: April 22, 2007 11:39:07 AM
my fave is a 60% merino, 30% silk, 10% mohair. super easy to spin, and it produces a nice shimmery yarn with a little halo. my wheel's getting a little rickety and starts making horrible sounds at high speeds, so it's nice to be able to get it pretty thin without snapping.

if you're not into mohair, just plain merino/silk is a dream (so is the alpaca/merino/silk ivycircle mentioned!), but i love the way the mohair adds a little bit of shimmer to the yarn.

i'm on the way out the door, but i haven't done a fiber friday in a while.

i finished this one on tuesday or something. (sorry LJ/flickr friends who've already seen it!) i called it nantucket, and i spun it from dyed batts.

i've been AWOL from craftster for awhile, so i guess i'd better get back in the game!


i bought this pencil roving when i took a road trip to the mannings with my cousin and inhope. i bought it because i thought it was horribly ugly, and i was interested in how it would spin up. why would they sell something that spins into crappy looking yarn? so i took a chance.


what an improvement! i think that the royal blue sandwiched between that muddy green was what turned me off initially, but i must say, it turned out really nicely.

"desert cactus"
unknown fiber
300 yards, sport weight, mostly even (except for when i wasn't paying attention)
4 oz.
