Ever since I have started spinning, a year and a few months, I have been to only one festival. Maryland Sheep and Wool. It was a blast, and now I am getting the chance to go to rhinebeck with a friend I met here on craftster! Necia! Anyways, I loved MSW and I am looking even more forward to this, it being my first time in NEW YORK, i'm only 17 too so it's a nice traveling experience since I live in Virginia, and it being my second fiber fest. I have a little job with my dad on weekends I help out and I make 18 bucks a weekend. I have been saving since May I think and I so far have 300+bucks saved up Cheesy I can't wait....

Well I kinda got side tracked and shared a useless story but I would say that saving up for one is a good idea if you know what you want. I got my wheel used but I got to try it first and it's a good wheel, I have outgrown it now and rhinebeck is going to be my testing center for new wheels...but I already have my mind set on a Lendrum Cheesy

Hope I helped at all lol.

OoOOOo: also, we should like plan a meet up if possible for people from craftster just to say we met in person!!! But I will start another topic and thread about this Cheesy

Holy crap the colors this week are amazing! Great Job everyone Cheesy

My few from summer vacation:

First is masham and a llama/cormo blend; 2ply; about 88 yards



Next is MEGA BLUE, random wool and mohair blend that I spun extreamly bulky...the sad thing is I wanted to break out my spindle since I've used my wheel for the past .... 4 months since I've gotten it and this is how I did...lmao! I think I managed 15-25 yards..



This was roving that I dyed with kool-aid and then spun into a light-heavy worsted; single; I think I have 140 or 150..not sure; llama/wool/silk blend



This I also dyed with kool-aid and is the same blend as the one above, just different colors. I tried to spin it like Holly[misshawklet] spins her singles...I failed Ha! I told her that once you train youself to spin thin..it's hard to go back; single; 50-52 yards




One of my favorites and a dream to spin; I call it chocolate covered strawberries Cheesy ; single; 120+ yards; pink-merino and brown/black- llama/cormo blend



MY FAVORTIE!!! This was spun from roving from a California Red sheep, I got it from the only person in Virginia[where I live] who has this breed in the whole state. It feels so coarse at first but when you spin it up it is a nice solid but still fluffy and soft yarn. It is an oatmeal color with small hairs that look like guard hairs that are shades of fire red all the way to raspberry...this picture does no justice it's amazing Cheesy ; 2ply; pretty even light to medium worsted; 100+ yards; from 2oz. of roving



Thanks for letting me participate, can't wait till next week Cheesy
19  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Oiling a Louet- Yes or No? on: August 14, 2007 08:17:22 AM
Hmm, can't say I've heard of NO OILING for Louets, my friend who started me out spinning gave me some wheel oil and I use that on my S-10 on the orifice, the rest that the orifice piece spins in, and on the groove in the wheel. Hope that helps Cheesy
Thanks.  I thought so.  All this time I have been oiling it (if I don't, the family starts to wince and complain) and it's good to know I have been doing it right.  I don't oil the groove in the wheel though, do you mean where the drive band is?

Yep, I do just as a habbit, but when I do, I use wood polish mixed with the oil. I need to send mine back to get adjusted, I can't spin while someone is asleep in our house, even if I'm in the basement it's so loud, it clicks and squeaks....oh well they will fix it Cheesy Glad I helped Cheesy
