As I was reading this, I thought "if i had a wooden wheel to finish I would make it purple!", then I clicked on your pictures  Shocked Shocked Shocked

That is soooooo awesome!! I want a Kromski Mazurka, they are such pretty wheels and in purple, would be totally ace!
3  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Bast Bamboo roving? on: May 09, 2010 10:28:34 AM
This stuff feels like a cross between linen and bamboo, kinda silky and kinda tuff. I just got some of this out of curiosity. I am just beginning to venture into plant fibers. Just tried my first bamboo and also bought some cotton sliver. Just curious of anyone else has tried this fiber. I don't know what i will make out of it.

It's a beautiful wheel! 3 in 1 oil works good too. I started using that since I couldn't find sewing machine oil. DON'T put olive oil on it, that will get nasty eventually.

6  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Babe Wheel Delta Flyer vs. Plying flyer on: May 05, 2010 05:54:30 PM
I think i really want a delta flyer. I have the problem with the hooks catching when i spin things super woolen (which i like to do alot). But I think i have to save up for the drum carder first then wheel accesories. what an addiction, and now its shearing season...

LOL Roll Eyes i had to stop and ask myself the same question, i'm 29. I still think i'm young  Grin

8  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Drum Carders opinions on people's favorites... on: May 05, 2010 05:17:10 PM
I am saving up (this is a huge investment!) for my first Drum Carder and am wondering what people have to say about the one they have etc. I'm looking for something that can take alot of use and handle a wide variety of fibers from both roving and fleece. I'm thinking of getting a Fancy Kitty Fine carder or a Strauch Petite.

I would love to hear people's experiences since there are people on the boards carding up beautiful batts  Grin

Yummy batts!
What type of drum carder do you use? I'm looking to get one and love to hear people's opinions of theirs.
