1  Louet S10 Broken Part Identification, Help please! in Spinning: Discussion and Questions by Nven on: August 06, 2012 05:32:31 PM
This weekend I acquired a well loved Louet S10. 

Its about 25yrs old and over all looks to be in good order.  I should note at this point that I've never used or owned a spinning wheel.  All my spinning has been with a drop spindle before my toddler discovered my stash of roving.  That being said according to Google I have a very good new best friend.

So far I can identify only one broken part.  It looks like the footman to treadle connector, but of course knowing essentially nothing about spinning wheels I was hoping one of you kind and better informed craftsters could confirm that for me before I start ordering pieces.  And I gladly welcome another other bits of advise you might have to offer!!

Apologies for being tardy, here is a pic of the wonderful wristlet that ToubleT sent me!  I came with a bag of chocolate but that didn't last very long  Grin

Thanks TroubleT!

I up-cycled a pair of brown corduroy pants and blue cord skirt to make this bear for my son for xmas.  The pattern is "Mona" from a book whose title escapes me at the moment...

4  Happy from Fairy Tail in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Nven on: February 11, 2012 11:47:33 AM
Happy is a flying blue cat from an anime called Fairy Tail which my husband and I watch together.
He's made of terry cloth, fleece and felt from my stash using the grey cat pattern from a book called "Doudous tout doux : Apprendre crer des doudous avec Aranzi Aronzo."

5  Colourful Juggling Cats in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Nven on: February 11, 2012 11:40:09 AM
I crocheted these while pregnant for my son to make a mobile for his crib and never got around to hanging them.  My son still plays with them, now that he knows not to try and chew the buttons off  Smiley

6  Fall Seed Stitch Jacket & Rainy Day Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by Nven on: February 11, 2012 11:35:45 AM
Knit these up for my toddler months ago but misplaced them (in the closet of all places) before I could get pics.
Seed Stitch Baby Jacket by Elinor Brown
The Long Beanie by Woolly Wormhead
Pantons Decor yarn.

The hat was knit one rainy afternoon last fall.  The jacket over a few months, so much seed stitch!  My seams leave something to desire but otherwise I'm pleased with it.  Lined it with some blue flannelette so it will be nice and cozy for the fall.  I put it on my son for the photo and he didn't want to take it off!

7  Trio of Earflap Hats in Knitting: Completed Projects by Nven on: February 11, 2012 11:30:34 AM
Great stash busting project! I knit 3 total. My gauge was off on the first making it too small for me and just too big for my toddler this year.

9  Mouse, the size of a mouse in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Nven on: October 24, 2011 04:29:31 PM
I made this little guy for my partner in the Dresden Files swap.

Mouse in a very large dog in the books with a big shaggy mane.
Honestly I'm surprised he came out so nice since this was my first figure in polymer clay.

10  Sanya, Knight of the Cross in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Nven on: October 24, 2011 04:26:50 PM
Now that my partner has received I can post pics!  This is Sanya, a Knight of the Cross from the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher.

Complete with embroidered Kevlar vest and holy sword!
I took some liberties seeing as for the life of me I couldn't find a mention as to whether or not he had hair and any of the descriptions I found.  I always pictured him with a shaved head so he's sans hair.  I also don't think this Kevlar is quite so loud in the books, but I was having fun.

The figure was crochet with a 3.25mm hook using the humanoid pattern from Geek Central.  The embellishments are felt and embroidery floss, the sword is polymer clay.
