Just FYI, most brands go for about $50-60.  But I'd urge you to keep those carders.  After making the investment, I wasn't sure I'd use mine either, but they've been indispensible.

Very nice! 

Tablet weaving is something I'm hoping to get into this winter.  I've got the cards, I just need some guidance.  Luckily there is a weaver in my guild who's written a book on the subject and teaches classes, so hopefully she'll take me on as a student.

FYI, this might not be the most convenient night due to the holiday tomorrow, but nonetheless we're knitting at Mabel's again tonight from 7 til close, if anyone wants to stop by.  Cheers!

Just a followup...we're definitely meeting at Mabel's tomorrow at 7.  I'm the redhead who'll most likely be drinking beer and working on a lacy green scarf (that I've been working on since May, hehe).  So cmon out!

Hey yall.  I just read this.  There are a few of us who meet up at Mabel's on Weds evenings (usually 7-9) to knit.  Although, since one woman lives in NW, we sometimes meet around her neighborhood, which we did this week.  Next week will most likely be Mabel's again.

You gals (and anyone else interested) are most welcome to join us!

Erm...I will post here next Tues if we're definitely meeting there.

I'm doing this in the Sirdar Snuggly...a pale grey color.  I have become the joke of my knitting group, since I've been working on this forevah!  Still only half done...summer will definitely have passed by the time it's completed.   Wink

Don't know if you found your teacher yet; if not, try the Philadelphia Guild of Handweavers: http://www.pghw.org

They offer classes on spinning occasionally.  If you can't afford it, you may be able to get in touch with a member of the guild that can teach you privately for less money.  That is how I learned.

(I would offer to teach you myself, but I am going to be out of town a lot in the next few weeks.)

Both are lovely!  I love the colors.

Now I'm itching to get my loom warped and get weaving again.  I'm afraid I abandoned it in favor of my spinning wheel recently!

Try "A Handweaver's Pattern Book"  I own a copy, but I've seen it at my library, too, so maybe yours would have one.  It has hundreds of patterns for 4-harness looms.  That is how I entered the world of overshot patterns!!
10  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Caring for your spinning wheel on: June 23, 2005 09:46:55 AM
I have one of those tiny bottles of schacht spinning wheel oil.  The bottle has a tiny applicator tip that makes the oil easy to apply.  I've heard you can use 30 grade motor oil too.

I bought an unfinished wheel, so I had to sand it and wax it before assembling.  I got the Ashford Teak Wax.  It gave my wheel a nice finish.  I'm sure other types of furniture wax would work fine, too.
