1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Sweeney Todd Knits. on: December 22, 2007 02:47:00 PM
Let me just say, the fingerless gloves were amazingly awesome.  As was everything else. 

Anyone concur?
2  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / I hate my wheel. on: September 08, 2007 07:50:33 PM
It's nothing personal, really.

So, I've been spinning a year and a half or so, six months back, I took a liking to the thought of getting a wheel.  I know, I know, most people rent a wheel before they jump in and buy one, but nowhere remotely close to where I live offer them for rent.  So I took the plunge and bought one.  I didn't appreciate spending so much, but I thought it would be worth it.

Then my dad has to go and decide to pay for the whole thing as my graduation gift.  Wonderful of him, I really love the man for it.  But then I got my wheel.

And I don't like using it. I adore my drop spindle, and I can't get the same vibe with the wheel.  It's not like it's even a deficent wheel or anything.  I just am not a fan.

Soo... what do I do?  I don't want to disappoint my father, because he so wanted to buy it for me and see me enjoy it.  The wheel is just taking up space, though, in my already crowded, tiny house.

Methinks this is self explanitory. 

Anyways, it seems as if they'll have some cute stuff this issue.  Especially the Back to Basics sweaters.
4  KNITTING / Knitalongs / MS 3 on: July 06, 2007 02:19:10 PM
So, am I the only knitter on here doing the Mystery Stole 3?  Because, right now I could most definately use some encouragement.  Seriously, I got done with clue 1 THREE times so far, but every time I think I'm finished I drop a stitch that is impossible to pick up.  ARGH!  So, it probably would help if I wasn't using crappy yarn, but I'm still paying off my spinning wheel and college fund. 
Okay, vent over.  It is now safe to come out.
5  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Squeaky wheels need grease on: June 27, 2007 04:09:14 PM
So, I just got my new(ish) spinning wheel today, and the wheel bearings sqeak terribly. What type of lubricant should I use to stop this, or do I just need to grin and bear it?
