11  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Lendrum DT wheel misalignment? on: December 22, 2007 05:28:02 PM
Most likely no one is going to be able to help me, but I figured I would post here just in case. It seems my wheel has become displaced. I don't know what the issue is. I hadnt moved it in a couple months because I didn't have any time at all, but last night I spun for 7 hours straight. At first the wheel was perfectly fine, but after a while it started becoming wobbly, and then when i was trying to ply it was just knocking against the bar that connects the treadles.

I haven't touched the C clip since i originally put my plying drive band on, and I had used it several times since then.

Heres a video of me treadling so you can see what I'm talking about. The first few seconds are me treadling on the right only, and it seems more fine.. wobbly but not perfect. I can use it, at least. I tried with the left treadle only, but it wouldn't work.. it knocked too much against the bar and stopped the wheel completely.

Any ideas? So sad.. Sad I emailed gord lendrum and asked him how i should go about fixing it. I hope he gets back to me soon...

13  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / CROCHET CHALLENGE 6: Combined Techniques - ENDED on: November 12, 2007 06:42:29 AM
The theme for the sixth crochet challenge is combined techniques! Create anything you want using more than one technique. That could be crochet with embroidery, crochet with knitting, crochet with cross stitch, crochet with melted beads, crochet with apple pie. Okay, that last one is weird, but you get the point.

I am going to make an executive decision that tunisian and regular crochet do not count, since tunisian is a form of crochet.

The format:

When posting your challenge entry, please post it under Crochet Challenge Entries. In the message body, post the title of your entry and clear pictures.

The Deadline:

The crafting period will last three weeks for this challenge. Enter now until December 7th at 11:59 EST in order to be considered for the challenge! DEADLINE EXTENDED

The Prizes (the best part!):

The winner of this challenge will recieve:

A $25 gift certificate for Artsygal! Spend it on the handpainted yarn or roving of your choice.

All prizes donated by the people mentioned. If you would like to donate a prize for the crochet challenge, please PM me.

Have fun!

14  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Spin Along: Spinning based on a picture on: November 09, 2007 07:16:39 AM
Since so many of you requested that this be a spin along rather than a challenge, I decided to make it such. There won't be any prizes or voting aside from voting on a monthly theme.

So heres the deal:

Vote on a theme for a spin along you would like to try. If you do not see a theme here that you're particularly interested in, suggest it in the themes thread: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=198614.0
When voting is over, I will reply to this thread with the official spin along theme and everyone can get spinning!

The theme for the first official spinalong is Spinning Based on a Picture! Spin whatever you'd like as long as it is inspired by a picture. When posting your finished yarn here, please credit your source

Post your pictures of your themed yarn here so we can all see. This spin along will never expire, so keep posting even if we've moved on to another theme!

15  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / VOTE FOR THE THEME OF CROCHET CHALLENGE 6 on: November 01, 2007 07:31:45 AM
It's that time again! I've got to say that some of the themes suggested since the last crochet challenge are wonderful. (I know I have a favorite theme!) There are a lot of options this time around, so good luck voting! (Next time I think I might start breaking them down into groups so the votes aren't so scattered. What do you think?)

Thanks for the break, guys. I hope everyone has had a nice break from the challenges and is ready to get back into the swing of things!
