Details of swap: (copied from H&H round 1)

This is the Handspun & Handcrafts Swap!! This swap will pair up spinners and non-spinners (hereafter referred to as crafters, not because spinners are not crafters, but to keep things simple), to swap handspun and other crafts with each other.  Spinners will make beautiful yarn for their partners and Crafters will make beautiful crafts for their partners.    Please discuss with your partner to determine level of effort: as a general guideline, spinners will make a skein of yarn for their partner, and crafters will make one large and 2 small items for their partner (of course, both a "skein" and a "large/small item" are really relative terms, which is why you need to communicate with your partner). You can do more than this of course if you both agree to do so.

You will sign up either as a Spinner OR a Crafter, please use the appropriate questionnaire below.

If more crafters than spinners sign up, the swap will be limited to the number of spinners (and vice-versa). Participants will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis (sign up early!).

I am anticipating that there will be more crafters sign up than spinners. Therefore, spinners who have successfully completed at least one swap may choose to take two partners if desired, and crafters will be limited to one partner, to ensure that more people get a chance to participate.

I just used the requirements and everything from the original swap, which states that spinners will send one skein of yarn, and crafters will send 1 lg and 2 small items... PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF CRAFTSTER, communicate with your partner to figure out what you want to do.

Oh, and please please please fill out the questionaire well, because I'll be using it to match people's preferences.  If you only want super bulky yarn, be sure to write that, so I don't match you with a spinner who only spins lace weight!!!

Hopefully I can join the next round.  Right now I just want to limit myself to the IYP and maybe one other swap that is unique and not likely to be around often.  I don't know how I missed all the previous rounds (probably cause I was maxed out and not trying to look at new swaps).  This is a great idea.

Oh my... I'm a crafter... I have NEVER ever had handspun yarn before, and I desperately want to try some out!! I was going to buy some from a local store around here, but the woman was absolutely RUDE... I'd LOVE to craft for yarn! <3 Once I get a free space, this one is for me!!  ;D

So much for thinking you'll have more crafters than spinners!!!

If you get more crafters, let me know and I'll sign up as another spinner ....

oh my - -
this might really sway me into joining.....
I figured there would be way more crafters than spinners, and that
there might be a chance of not getting handspun yarn!
(my ultimate goal in joining this one....)

If you need another spinner, let me know and I'll sign up.  I learned to spin because I never got any in a swap and I was frustrated desperately wanting some, so I finally learned.  I LOVE spinning.

Right now it doesn't look like it, but if you need a spinner to send to two crafters, I can definitely do that. This sounds like a super cool idea, and a super cool way to get even more use out of my new spinning wheel. ;D

Shoot, if we have NEW spinners, I'd even sign up to get some newbie yarn!  I reallhy have to set and think to spin the thick & thin now and would love to get some in exchange for lace - DK weith 2-ply yarns!

Uh-oh, are you talking about me? I've been drop spindling for some time, so I found the transition to spinning wheel to be pretty easygoing (well.. it took me a couple hours to figure out exactly how this new, fancy machine worked, but the fiber pulling and twist aspects are the same). My yarns aren't that thick and thin. :(

Edited to add: I agree with myklia below me. It was such a relief to be able to spin things that aren't just slubby all over.

Post by: myklia on January 05, 2010 02:25:06 AM
Mine on average is worsted weight with some thin spots and the occasional thick blob. My spinning has gotten so much better.  I still haven't had the pleasure of touching a wheel, but now that I am more comfortable with my drop spindles it isn't as high of a priority.  I would like to go to a fiber festival to try out different wheels so I know what I like and see if it is worth it for me the spend the money.

Just a quick question, thinking about signing up. Can I choose either spinner or crafter to sign up as? I can technically spin, but I've only ever made about 5 skeins. I'd also love to recieve some handspun, and as I can do other crafts (like sewing, crocheting, jewellery making etc), would it be acceptable for me to sign up as a crafter?

Post by: superhooker on January 05, 2010 04:55:48 AM
That would be just fine!  Even if you are a great spinner, you could still sign up as a crafter and receive some handspun!


I think I normally spin somewhere between sport and worsted.  I really like to spin finer, though, so I think I want to try spinning more around fingering/sport for this swap.  I know it doesn't look super cool like those bumpy-arty yarns, but it is more satisfying to me right now to spin more evenly.  I mostly do double ply yarns.

I've been lurking undecidedly for a bit and I am seriously tempted.  I knit one of my Christmas gifts out of a handspun I got at a craft fair and now I want more!! I'll check in (cave in?) later this week.

I feel bad that I helped make the pairings uneven :( I really wanted to join earlier, but I had a certain swap feedback that was held up for a month and a half! I promise to make my package worth it though. :)

WWOOOOOOOOOO hair of my chinny chin chin...I am away from home and just finally got my parents poop computer cleaned up enough to actually look at anything on the web..(facepalm) and I was browsing craftster and wham...I found ya. If you guys don't see me sign up for a fiber related swap, someone should pm me and ask if I am awake or alive. I am sooo glad I just happen to see this one. I was showing my mom what it is we do on craft swaps and showing her gallaries of swaps past..she was floored by all our talents btw.

Ohh MLF you know we all have crafty love for you! We always love having you around here.  :D

Man, this is such a good excuse to relax, watch movies, and spin!

I have to go shopping for some fibers and unfortunately can't do that until my next day off...next Tuesday.  :(  But at least it gives me something to look forward to! In the meantime I can finish off what's on my wheel so I can fully concentrate on my partner's lovely yarn.

A2K  ... we really need to do a personal swap!!!  LOL!


I think you're right!  :D  You need some of my "thick and thin" before I get good at this spinning thing!!! :D  I spent an hour with my wheel today!  It was fun.  I have been spinning some wool from lapoli in her colorway "Sherwood Forest!"  I'm setting the twist right now!  It's still not thin enough, though -- drafting is HARD!!! I have gotten better at treadling, though, so I'm not putting in too much twist MOST of the time.  :D   


Title: Re: Handspun and Handcrafts swap round 4! sign up CLOSED!! send out 3-3-10
Post by: mullerslanefarm on January 20, 2010 12:46:02 PM
OI!   YES  I need your thick and thin!!!  I spun up 2 oz of thick and thin, then plied with thread .... then I spun up 2 - 2 oz of  fingering and plied together ....  got more than 3 X the yarn with the 2 - 2 oz (finish weight is worsted) than I did with the thick/thin.

I do love to knit up knobby hats and scarves with the thick & thin but I also love the 'standard' yarns too!!

LOL I only speak Yarn. ;)

I need to finish the yarn on my bobbin (for A2K!) then I can get started on sugaree's yarn! tomorrow I should be able to dye up some fiber for it. although, I've never tried to dye a cream color before, any tips? I'm thinking a really watered down yellow, or ecru might work.


Title: Re: Handspun and Handcrafts swap round 4! sign up CLOSED!! send out 3-3-10
Post by: mullerslanefarm on January 20, 2010 01:22:12 PM
I can translate, Beeker!!!

Thick & Thin:  A yarn that doesn't have a consistent width ... some places are thick and some places are thin.

Plyed or Ply:  When you take 2 peices of single spun yarn and spin them together ...

Fingerling:  The 'weight' of the yarn, or how thin it is.  Usually if you Ply two fingerling singles together, you get a 'worsted' 2-play

Worsted:  see explaination of Fingerling. ...

So you know that I'm:

Rolling in Fiber

spinning singles
and
plying into 2-play hand spun for you!!!

Nesse:  Think of the soaps you make using Olive Oil or Palm Oil (both which have a yellow cast)  think of the color wheel of yellow to blue and yellow to red ....

I've found cream color roving gives a 'warm' cast to what ever color you want to dye it to.

Beeker, you want me to inclue the vocab test in my swap box???  LOL!!!

I'm super happy with my partner :)  I know very little about handspun yarn, so I think I'm pretty easy to please there lol  I have one large planned already and will start as soon as I get to the store and get the right hook (started it once already and my gauge was waaaaaaaaaaaaay off lol), and I have a couple smalls planned too.  Have some ideas for other items, but nothing for sure yet.  This is lots of fun already!

When I finish those other swaps, It won't take much to finish up. Then there's just the question, to send early.... ???....or add a few more little things.... ;)....we'll just have to wait and see.   ;D
I also love smiley faces...  :) ;) :D ;D >:( :( :o 8) ??? ::) :P :-[ :-X :-\ :-* :'( Can you ever have too many?

I've found cream color roving gives a 'warm' cast to what ever color you want to dye it to.

that totally makes sense, but I think you might have understood me wrong? I meant that I want to dye a white roving to a cream color :D

haven't made any progress with ANYTHING today. I'm helping some friends with a movie (I get to run around all day in black spandex with awesome latex alien hands, feet, and of course, the head) so I've been going over lines and shooting. tomorrow I work all day... so hopefully saturday? maybe.

Hows everybody doing?

I've got all my fibers picked out, but I haven't gotten a chance to do much spinning yet.  I like to spin when I know I've got a nice chunk of free time, cause I don't like to stop/start a lot...  Things have been a bit hectic here lately!

But...I'll have the house to myself again starting next week, so I plan to spin like a crazy person!

Just to let you know what is going on with the crafting. I have everything just about planned out now. I have one item done. Not sure if it counts as a large or medium.

Now that the doberman has gone home, I'm not afraid to bring my wheel out. As soon as I am done with the rediculous amount of skating I have planned for the week (when it rains it pours) I will be SPINNING! hooray!

I have plans and one item in my possession, but I'm busy enjoying the Alabama sunshine!  Today I walked the beach, got my feet wet, picked up shells and got a tiny little bit of sun on my cheeks.  It was awesome!!!
I am abosolutely green with envy...

I had a successful day of dyeing! the bamboo will take a few days to dry, and I've got a busy weekend with the family so I probably wont get a chance to spin until monday.

ps, A2K I am so jealous! it's snowy and windy and collllld here in NY.

I'm averaging about a 200 yard of 2-ply yarn a day since I've been laid off, then will go on a week long knitting spree.  (I even managed to take pictures of what I spun this week ... wait for Fiber Friday!)

I'm pretty positive what I'm sending to Beeker  (unless I spin up something else that screams her name before we send these out!!!)

I am finishing up a couple of little swaps to send out next week then I can get back to my projects for this swap. I so want to finish, but I have to finish the ones that are due first. I don't think I can be happy unless I have at least 3 or 4 project laying all over my work space... ;D

I just wanted to check in.  I haven't started spinning yet, but I've been thinking about colors.  I'll probably start spinning towards the end of February because we have a 2 week break from school for the Olympics.

Mwa ha ha :)  The pattern for the item you asked for led to yarn, which is awesome.  The other large which I'm keeping as a surprise ;) actually started with yarn and then I figured out what to do with it lol  Seriously, I was at Michaels and thinking that I needed another larger and there was this yarn....  I knew I had to use it for you!  I'm having so much fun!

We were celebrating last week when we finally got above 32*F and had a bit of rain to melt the snow!!!

Of course, then it snowed again and that wonderful rain is now solid ice topped with snow.  Sure makes getting down our 1/4 mile driveway exciting!

Beeker, I can send you all the snow you want!!!

Just finished another item. One more medium and my smalls. I worked with a yarn that I don't work with that much. I am surpirsed it turned out real good. I am the worst critic of my work. I always have to ask my BF about it. He is a good critic. Gives me high marks most of the time. He does give suggestions which is great. He is just amazed at my knitting creativity.

What do they offer in the intermediate spinning class??

I haven't taken a class in nmy life and am getting ready to propose teaching a beginners / intermediate / advanced/ spinning classes at the local Community College .....

Quote from: A2K

A2K,
I started spindling 13 years ago ... just off and on. Didn't start spinning with a wheel until 2002.  Totally self-taught.  I've found out in the end, you are going to approach the wheel and spin the way you are comfortable ... there is no one right or wrong way to do it.

Big thing with spinning is getting your bobbin tension (bobbin take-in speed) coordinated with the amount of twist you're putting on the fiber & co-ordinating that with how fast you're treadling.

Recommendations:  Learn various drafting techniques.  Short-forward draw, Short-backward draw, supported long draw, long draw and plenty in-between-.

Kind of like knitting, but more free-form.  You don't have to worry about getting your tension just right ... unless you want to!!!  Treasure those thick & thin / over/under twisted yarns of the first few months.... after a year, you'll have to concentrate when you want to make them.

Enjoy the Zen of spinning, the colors and texture going through your fingers making a beautiful finished product .... that is the beginning of yet another beautiful finished product!!!

Post by: ariaya on February 03, 2010 09:14:40 PM
Here's the info on the class ..

Quote
Spin U is a series for intermediate and advanced spinners who own one or more wheels.  It will use "Alden Amos' Big Book of Handspinning" and Judith McKenzie McCuin's "The Intentional Spinner" as the text books.  It will start with wheel maintenance and move to spinning techniques, fiber analysis, and fiber preparation among other things.

I talked to someone at the store today and it sounds like they'll be going through these books in detail and with teachers who can explain and demo!

Ahh .. now I have to wait until June to start ....

Post by: mullerslanefarm on February 03, 2010 10:13:13 PM
Okay, I have both those books.

I can see having wheel maintenance & fiber analysis as an imtermediate class and then fiber prep, including color and intentional spinning & plying for an advanced class.

Thanks!!  This has helped me alot getting class sylabus' set in my mind!

Bought some fun roving today. The colors are definitely happy and I can't wait to see how they spin up. The last batch of roving that I got from this company was a complete surprise. The colors were kind of a muddy hodge podge with a little bit of everything and it spun up with the most amazing color changes. This one looks to be just as much of a surprise.  ;D

Change of plans.  DD went into labor yesterday.  I headed out at 3:00.  It's normally a 4 hour drive.  Snow stopped about half way there but the winds picked up and the roads were ice covered.  I saw 101 vehicles in the ditch ...  It took me 6 hours.

DD (Laura) was fully dialated about midnight and gave birth at 1:11 AM.

Kristany Alexandra
8# 11 oz
20"

Both Laura and Kristany are running fevers and have some sort of infection.  Kristany is in NICU.  Laura hasn't even held her daughter yet and only saw her briefly for a quick kiss before they whisked Kristany off.

Say some prayers for my girls.


oh yeah .... I'm a MeMaw !!!!  :)

Kristany has stablized enough she is no longer in an oxygen topper.  If she continues to be stable this afternoon, Laura will be able to nurse!! She is doing great with pumping her colostrum & milk.

If all goes well this evening and tonight, Kristany's doctor will allow short room visits for her!!! She still has to undergo a lumbar puncture so they can test her spinal fluid for infection.

Keep those prayers coming!!

Congrats Me-Maw :)

I've just got one more small thing to finish up, hopefully I'll be shipping out next weekend.  I'm pretty happy with everything I've made you dear partner, so I hope you like everything too!

I have been spinning like a freak for the past two days!!  I think I'm nearly done with LagamorphLounge's yarns. I may do a couple more things, though.

I spun one large skein for A2K...and I'm pretty freaking proud of it!  I also found a beautiful roving at my LYS that I think will be perfect, so I'll pick that up next week at my spinning circle.

Kristany's spinal tap test came back good!!!  Laura & Kristany are settling in to a nice nursing schedule.  They got a late start (3 days old) with nursing, but both are getting the hang of things.

That's awesome with the grandbaby, there! :)

I'm slowly but surely getting back into this knit pattern. Taking some time! :/ This silly wedding planning/surviving my last term of college is getting in the way! But, back to watching The Holiday on TBS and knitting in bed.

Sleeeeeeeeeeeeeep will surely follow, though. I can feel it!  :(

I've got one small done, half of the large is 99% complete (so I guess that means it's 49% completed overall?) and I plan on working on the other half of the large and the other small this weekend/next week. 

The large is turning out very cute, so I really hope you like it, ariaya!

Almost through spinning my main yarn before I ply it...sometimes the last little bits are the hardest to get done with. I also think I am doing some art yarns to go with it too....Feb has been a silly crazy month for me so I haven't been the best posting to the board. I am still here though and still crafting...Yeaaaa

I can relate to having a crazy month.  I am currently stalled.  Nothing I craft is turning out worth a s&*t!  I will not disappoint my partner, though!  It's just a matter of days and I'm sure I'll have my crafty karma back!

Nothing you do is disappointing!!!   You are a crafty genius!!
I'm just about done spinning up the special stuff I got for you...It will take a couple of hours to ply though!

Ohh .. I've had times like that.  I'm sure you'll get out of it though!  I love the stuff I've seen from you!

I just finished plying one skein .. no idea how long it is .. I still have to finish it, but it came out to approximately the weight I wanted and I love the way the colors worked up .. just the thing I was going for *grin*

A crafty genius indeed!  And you two both being amazing!  I know what I WANT most to make, but cannot yet use the stairs and my sewing stuff is in the basement.  Had a little incident with my surgical incision yesterday -- ended up in ER, and I am bummed out!  BUT, I did work on an idea for a small yesterday and I have high hopes for the outcome!  :D  Thanks for the pats on the back, you guys.

My large was destroyed by my evil chinchilla, she chewed a hole right in the middle of and started unraveling it, shes love to steal stuff, especially my stuf, I don't have time to remake it so I have to come up with something else and I am out of time, i have quite a few smalls (like 7) and a really cool extra I bought yesterday. I have no idea what I'm going to do now. Off to think, I hate thinking.

I am in the process of packing things up. I wound up spinning waaaaay more than I needed to, so it's mostly a matter of deciding what to pick (my thought process was something like "Ooooh.. she'd like that colorway. Oooooh.. or maybe this one. Oh man, but this one is so neat too!"). I'll probably send out on Tuesday, and I do believe TattooedCrafter is going to love her extras. I have waaaay more than I thought I would. :p

Thank you, I will certainly! Yeah, I'm not one to keep up with dates of things at college so knowing when Spring Break fell was apparently not my forte! ;P

I received an awesome package from Untouchable Face on saturday but have been super busy lately. I have pictures taken, I will be posting them up as soon as i have a free minute!
Sadly, my package hasn't made it to the post office yet. I finished everything the other day but I just haven't made it to the post office. :(

I just sent to Thenutmeg2000!
I am so excited about this package, I fell way more in love with the last thing I did than my large!

It should be there by Wednesday, my SC address isn't too far from you in VA!

Excitement!!!
:D
