21  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: How long did it take to get your WooLee winder??? on: February 23, 2009 01:26:35 PM
Hee hee, I bet you do forget once you're used to having it on there.  I didn't get one when I first started spinning, couldn't afford it and just didn't think it was reasonable to spend so much on an accessory for my wheel.  Now that my spinning time is getting more and more limited I feel like I'll be happy to invest a bit to end all the stopping and starting Smiley  I love my wheel, we get along great and hopefully the WooLee winder will just add to the experience Smiley

Thanks Smiley  My wheel is a Louet Victoria so hopefully it won't take too long Smiley  I'm super excited about it, I truly hate sliding the little guide manually, it really bugs me Smiley

Um, yeah, the title pretty much says it all.  A WooLee winder is my tax refund gift this year so I just ordered it and am wondering how long those of you that have one had to wait Smiley

Thanks Smiley

She really did great, she sat right to my side since I'm due in July with a new baby and have a bit too little lap to work the treadles with her on top of me.  She held the roving and practiced moving her hand back and forth with me to draft it out.  It was really cute.  She wanted to try the treadles so I let her but she gave up on that pretty quick as she is tiny and not really coordinated enough to keep them going yet Smiley

Thanks guys Smiley  I did clarify it with her, I showed her the lack of any sharp objects and let her feel the different parts of the wheel Smiley  Today she actually sat with me and helped me draft for a bit so I guess she is over it Smiley

First thing I've spun in a while.  It's a superwash merino bamboo blend hand dyed by this etsy seller :  http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5368210

I am expecting another girl in July and wanted to spin something soft and washable to make her a shawl wrap.  Here is the result so far, not thru knitting but I did start already Smiley

TFL, this is the first time I've had my wheel out in ages and I really enjoyed it Smiley

I haven't spun in forever as my toddlers who are 13 months apart got a bit too into the wheel for a while there.  I finally broke my wheel out again this week as they are getting a little older and better able to keep their hands off the wheel.  My daughter who is three and very into sleeping beauty walked into the living room and shouted "oh no mommy, don't touch it" when she saw me spinning  Grin

I love my Louet Victoria wheel, it is very light and easily packed away where the toddlers cannot harm it.  It is very comfy to spin on too.

I've heard bad things about modern inexpensive singers.  I would go vintage if you are looking for a good simple machine that won't break your budget.  If you can afford to spend a bit more, the higher end modern machines are a good bet.  Mine is a Brother.
