I just like the word diz.  it makes me giggle.   I gave my hand carders a go again, and I'm winning with them, only getting the fiber to be a batt or roving is tricky... Still have time to practice though LOL

I'm off to find out how to use a diz.

Belladune, I love your dyed rovings!  Esp. the 'Hippy' - the colours blend so nicely.

Great yarns from everyone this week.  I haven't finished anything, but I do have some singles on the bobbin I hope to have finished by next week.

thank you!  I can't wait to see how it spins up!

8988  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Linseed oil on moving parts of wheel? on: April 03, 2009 11:05:30 AM
Okay on the topic of petroleum jelly (aka vaseline) this is what I found
"Chesebrough took the unrefined black "rod wax", as the drillers called it, back to his laboratory to refine it and explore potential uses. Chesebrough discovered that by distilling the lighter, thinner oil products from the rod wax, he could create a light-colored gel."  ~wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petroleum_jelly#Uses)
If it was used as a lubricant on rods in the oil field, unrefined, but still...  it would work on a rod on the spinning wheel.....   Now you could melt it down to reach the parts that can't be reached by the fingers too, right?  and it's a relative of the mineral oil.... 
Anyone know of a reason why not? 

and as to sewing machine lube, that could possibly work too, I can't see why not.  its generally more expensive from what I hear, but I can't get it here anyway.
