Wanted to show you guys what I've been up to lately! I've been working on updating the PVC spinning wheel I made a while ago, and I finally have success. It took a lot of abusing my Dremel tool and patience to get everything working right, but I'm glad I spent the time on it. I recycled the plastic pulley wheel, the bicycle wheel, and the knitting needle from the last wheel and I destroyed a couple coat hangers for the wire. The bobbins I made will hold quite a bit, right now I have some of the merino I received in the recent Fiber Swap on there.

There you have it! Any questions or comments are welcome, I'm always trying to think of ways to improve it. Cheesy

Honestly, a lot of it was trial and error. The hardest part was probably getting the treadle to work right. I'll take some measurements and see if I can put together a how-to.  Cheesy

I'd adore a how to if you get a chance.  Cheesy  It looks pretty darn awesome! 

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

Thanks! After I posted this I modge-podged some pink tissue paper onto it, so now its crazy bright pink. Smiley Maybe this weekend I'll try to figure out how I made this monster so I can share with you guys.
