gosh, I wish that stopped me! I'm already daydreaming of having a room someday big wnough for a floor loom! I don't know how to weave, but I bet I can learn!

I like making stuff. Rumor has it, I'm an elf. Like a Santa Elf, not one of those elegant LOTR types.  Mostly because I compulsively craft and partially because I have green shoes.

Ouf, I've already got a floor loom which gets used as a drying rack more than anything else...  Roll Eyes
I figure 2 types of large-ish tools is my max, so I might have switch out my Louet if I decide to spring for the Lendrum before we move into a bigger place!

I have a Fricke folding wheel :-) So far, I love her! I haven't had nearly enough time to hang out with her though..

I just got my Kromski Sonata (she's my first!).  I really like it and was able to start spinning within 30 minutes of getting it out of the box.

Hey, that's funny. I got a Kromski Sonata yesterday. It is a belated christmas-gift from my hubby and son. Such a nice wheel. Spins like a dream.

My first wheel is an old saxonian wheel. But I have to sell it, because I don't have room for two. Cry

A Lendrum single-treadle, with the optional plying head, which is HUGE.  Does like 6 to 8 ounces of fiber at a time.

I am in mad crazy love with this thing.  Crazy love.  I'd thought about getting a second one, just to have a spare, in fact.  (Not that I have either the money or the room, but it's nice to fantasize about wheelpr0n now and again.)

I've had my Sonata about 3 weeks now and it too is my first wheel, and man I  have to say I am just in love with it.

I have a wheel made by a carpenter in the 1960's.  It has single (small) bobbin, and so toilet paper tubes are my best friends.   However, the spoke through my wheel keeps loosening itself up, and after many visits to the wood shop in town for repairs, I think it's time to buy myself a new wheel.  Good thing my birthday is approaching and my father offered to buy one for me.  Eek!  Now I just need to figure out which one to get...

I have no idea what I'm doing!

Frost spinning post I think  Undecided
I am now the PROUD owner of a Ashford Traditional she's old(but so am I)she as a bit of a clunk in her  axle but she spins wonderfully I can spin  Shocked
I'm maybe the 4th /5th owner
the previous owner gave me a bargin at $100 & a bag of wool already carded & a 3 hour lesson most of it was talking about tops & what kind of fleece to start with( this lady is a master spinner & won tons of award & ribbons & such she does beautiful work) --- I just wanted to spin let me get my mitts on the wool-- so when I did start she said I was a natural
I am happy!!!!!!

a day without knitting is like a month without sunshine

I will knit for you in a personal swaps !!!!
