Oh my goodness!  I don't visit Craftster as much as I once did in the past  I loved the people I've met and the trades I've made.  I'll miss Fiber Friday

Thanks, Bella for posting this otherwise I wouldn't know that the forum was going silent and I wouldn't have found a new landing site.

mullerslanefarm - I actually don't know anything at all about looms except the steps our teacher taught us; are these Rigid Heddle looms?

No, those are multi-shaft (heddle) floor looms. The probably have two to four heddles.  Rigid heddle looms have a single heddle and are commonly worked clamped to a table or braced against a table or set in a stand.  They are great as beginner looms since there are a lot of things that can be worked up on them and they don't take up a lot of room.

What a wonderful experience with your parents!  

 There is a lot you can accomplish with a Rigid Heddle loom also!

I currently don't have room for a big, gorgeous wheel like that (however much I would love to have one).

I love how easy this spins .... it goes forever virtually by itself ... After I bought it I realized I really preferred upright wheels because they take up so much less room.  My other two wheels are the Ashford Traveller and Kromski Sonata (not counting my walking wheel Wink )

Oh how I miss Fiber Fridays!!!  Beautiful skeins!  Your boys are going to be soooo happy with their new hats!  I can almost feel the squishiness from here!!


I've been busy weaving these last few weeks.  I really need to get back on the wheel.  A new spinner and her mother dropped by tonight. She's trying to decide on a wheel so I let her try my 3 out.  Know anyone looking for an Ashford Elizabeth 30" Anniversary double treadle???

Thanks!

Thank you! The bobbins hold up to two ounces, but it has to be spun pretty fine. I'm getting about an ounce of this fluffy alpaca on them. He's prototyping a larger wheel that's very similar to the nano, but the size of his 5.2 (I think the bobbins hold closer to 4 ounces).

The wheel itself is pretty neat, IMO. It needs a few minor tweaks for optimal use (the ravelry group has a comprehensive thread on this), but it runs okay right out of the box. This was my first experience with wheel spinning, and I find it pretty easy to use.

I saw a great video (from the Dreaming Robots page) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQYlO1-h4Mw about it.

I'm looking for an e-spinner (because of an ankle injury) however I'm spoiled by the WooLee Winder on my other wheels

Nice job! The textured yarn will knit up beautifully!

How much fiber does the Nano hold?  I've been hearing good things about the Electric Eels
