1  EUROPE / SPAIN / Re: craft stores in Jerez and El Puerto area on: December 16, 2006 11:01:01 AM
Hi! Have you asked on andalucia.com? That is quite a lively english speaking forum and someone might be able to help...?
2  EUROPE / SPAIN / Re: junk shops recycle stores in southern spain on: December 16, 2006 10:58:02 AM
I thought I'd drop in to say Hi - I live slightly further north in Extremadura and one of the (few) things I really miss is charity / thrift shops and jumble sales!  I also miss 'proper' wool - it amazes me that I am surrounded by merino sheep but can only by acrylic from the yarn store....

I've seen jumble sales and suchlike advertised by one of the animal charities in Malaga but other than that I am afraid I can't help
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Crocheting silver silver question on: December 16, 2006 10:51:34 AM
Hi - I do a lot of crocheting and knitting with wire.  You can work easily with some of the finer gauges - I work a lot with .2mm which is American Wire Gauge 32 and upwards.  Anything over .5mm (Gauge 25) is tough going for me.  If working with the thicker wire is hard going you can work with a couple of strands of thinner wire.  As MyBadDemonica says fine silver is good- it is good for two reasons - firstly being almost pure silver it is very soft to work with and secondly being almost pure silver it doesn't tarnish like sterling!  Craft wires are all very soft and are a very inexpensive way to find out what is best for you.  If you can buy it reeled rather than coiled as it is much easier to work with (helps avoid wire-tangle which is a nightmare - I know!!).

5  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Who are you and other questions. Get to know your fellow spinners and mods. on: December 16, 2006 09:30:32 AM
Hi - my name is Kate and I am new here too!  I live in Spain although I am English.  I have been spinning for a while, i started when we kept angora goats, sheep and angora rabbits - spinning seemed like a sensible thing to do!  I have an Ashford Traditional which i enjoy - and also a Wheel of Unknown Parentage which i struggle with! 

I am delighted at the moment as I am recovering from a broken ankle and part of the rehab is a treadle motion which I have to do daily.  Ha!  Spinning under Doctors orders - excellent!  If I get caught spinning whilst I should be doing other more boring things I can just look regretful and say - "I'd love to but the doctor says..."

I've just finished some Jacobs fleece which I am wondering what to do with. As well as working with the raw fleece I am currently plying up a load of cashmere singles which I bought in a job lot - I ply them together into dk or chunky and then dye the yarn when it is finished.  I quite often keep a look out for bargain cobweb or lace weight yarns and then ply a load together to make thicker chunky yarns.

So, that's a bit about me!  Kate
