1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: ??'s blocking knitted handspun? on: May 25, 2008 02:02:31 PM
I just block it the same as commercial yarn - soak, squeeze and pin to the size its meant to be.

Just curious.. how much does hand spun yarn cost?

If you mean how much does the fiber cost, it can vary depending on what the fiber is, and what state it is in (ie hand dyed silk is gonna cost more per lb than fleece taken straight from a sheep) The spinning part is free (after you paid for your wheel or spindle)

I like Rhubarb Smiley

I think I need to put my multi up for sale since I need to make money back on the wheel Sad The purple I will make a hat or something for myself.

I would love to see a video of how you do this. Fleece seems to be the cheapest form of wool so I will probably do this in the future.

I bet it stinks Smiley Or if it doesn't, it will when its wet

My new Louet S10 arrived last Thursday, just in time for the long weekend I booked off work. I spent ALL DAY Friday making this. Thinking back, im not sure why it took so long since we have no TV and the internet wasn't working.

Damson Dream
100% pre-dyed Merino in Damson, purchased from Wonderwool Wales.
Approx 75g made approx 120 meters. I haven't measured WPI but its about an Aran weight.

My second yarn is:

Dirty Clown
100% merino again. Approx 100g/150m Aran again.

I love my Louet!

It looks like a Louet S10 (what I have) but all the Louets look similar to me.

I love this wheel, its so easy to use.

Great idea for a hoodie.
I made the scarf so someone would have to pay me a TON to get me to start knitting that damn binary again but I do love yours.
8  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Kromski Mazurka - pics and measurements wanted on: April 10, 2008 10:18:47 AM
Title says it really.

I was wondering if anyone has a Kromski Mazurka, and if so, could you do me a huge favour and measure the bobbin for me.

I have a non-descript antique castle wheel with only one bobbin and the Mazurka looks a lot like it. Im hoping I dont have to find a wood turner to make me a couple more...

10  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: DIY Mother Marion Wheel? (kick spindle) on: February 15, 2008 10:11:47 AM
There was some discussion about kick spindles here:

And ideas about where to buy them from cheaply.
As for making one, I have seen a somewhere before but I can't for the life of me remember where it was, sorry.
