Only slightly envious (kidding, I'm wildly envious!).
It looks brilliant and I hope you get lots of fun from it!

2008-01-10T14:49:00.000+01:00

oh and i forgot a few things: my minstrel wheel is named Stanislav (a good polish name a friend picked out for me). for ratios: i found the easiest at the beginning to use the biggest side of the bobbin and the biggest groove in the bigger whorl. for tips and tricks on what whorl to use when, the learn spinning visually book that you have helped me tremendously. what i started with was the biggest side of the bobbin and biggest groove on the bigger whorl for spinning the single, and then for plying i used the biggest side of the bobbin with the smaller groove on the biggest whorl. when i wanted to spin finer stuff, it goes much more quickly with the smaller side of the bobbin and the bigger groove on the smaller whorl for the single, and the smaller side of the bobbin with the smallest groove on the smaller whorl for plying. hope that makes sense! all of that is with the double drive setup. oh and wax the tension screw with candle wax too. for a lazy kate, i bought the arched kromski tensioned lazy kate, it seriously rocks. you can make your own out of a shoe box and some knitting needles, do a search on ravelry. *hugs*!!!

2008-01-10T14:41:00.000+01:00

yayyyyy. if you haven't found the kromski group on ravelry, there are some tips. i actually love using mine as a double drive and have yet to set up scotch tension with it, but maybe i will try. this baby loves oil though, especially when new. there is one place you shouldn't oil: the footman that has no bushing (metal ring), in other words the footman connected to the right pedal that is closer to the wheel. on that footman i wax the wood with a bit of white candle wax and i don't oil it. that cleared up my last squeak. if you have any questions drop me a line on ravelry, my email is down for the day as the server is moving racks. *hugs!* fbz

That is one beautiful wheel. Jealous! And your Firestarter is lovely too.

Oooooo. Aaaaaah. Pretty.

I still don't plan to start spinning, though. Therefore, no envy.

2008-01-09T02:54:00.000+01:00

Wow - the wheel is fabulous - gorgeous - a piece of art, even! Nice choice. And the Bob Firestarter - wow, it is breathtaking, love it in that colorway - your mods are perfect!

Yay! What fun mail.
It's so much fun to scare the postman with our excitement over mail deliveries.



Wahoo! Congratulations :)

may there always be a bit of fiber to spin and a piece of yarn to knit ...

While I was spinning this morning, I was thinking of YOU! I thought I haven't read a new blog post from you in some time, and that your spinning wheel might keep you busy already! And here it is! I'm looking forward to your creations, I know they will be wonderful.
I like the firestarter, have the pattern, want to knit them, but when??? :o)

congrats on your wheel! can't wait to see the gorgeousness that you will spin up with that!

2008-01-08T14:11:00.000+01:00

Gorgeous wheel!!!! I would have jumped up and down when the mailman came too. EZ Sewn BO is my favorite for toe-ups too. In fact, that reminds me, I need to unravel the tops of some older toe-up socks and re-do the bind-off with that method.

2008-01-08T14:04:00.000+01:00

Yay for the wheel!! It really looks shiny :) (ever watched firefly? if not, let's stick with very neat).
I'm sure you'll spend many happy days with it. Are you going to name it? I always wanted to name my Joy, but then it somewhat got stuck with "that Joy" :)

About ratios I know nothing - I just know my wheel has 4, and I use them how it feels best. Practice is everything! I'm sure you'll find out soon enough on your own (and it's fun, too!). And get yourself a lazy kate, I hesitated for 4 months (although my wheel has a built in one, but believe me, when the yarn snags for the forth time when plying, it is about time), and now can't live without it. Extra bobbins come in very handy when you're a lazy plyer, too. three are just not that much when you consider that you need an extra one for plying, too (or at least I need one).

I think I will have to get me some Bob sooner or later too, that sock just looks so great.

Herzlichen Glückwunsch zu Deinem Spinnrad :) Auf viele schöne Stunden mit ihm!

2008-01-08T13:14:00.000+01:00

Congratulations on your wheel!

And you will learn very fast, really!
Is there a regular meeting about spinning in Munich?
It's great to spin along with others and that's where I learned a lot.
There are things you could read about spinning... but it is much better, if someone shows you a few tricks about it ;)

And I love your firestarters! The colourway is just great for that pattern.

2008-01-08T13:12:00.000+01:00

Hallöchen,

ich gratuliere zum neuen Spinnrad - da können wir uns ja auf Bilder von den versponennen Wollmeisen freuen - und dem was du wunderschönes draus zauberst.

Firestarter stehen auch noch in meiner to-do Liste, Wolle ist schon gewickelt. Aber erstmal darf ich einen Skullschal stricken und andere Ufos beenden *grummel* ;-).

Liebes Grüßli

Bine

2008-01-08T13:09:00.000+01:00

OMG! What a pretty wheel! I am green with envy, but in a "totally and overwhelmingly excited for you" kind of way. Added to which, this just means that we, your faithful readers, will just have *more* gorgeous hand spun to ogle... so really it's a gift for us too!

Congrats!!!

2008-01-08T12:27:00.000+01:00

Deine Firestarter-Socke habe ich schon bei Yarnissima bewundert - traumhafte Farben und perfekt gestrickt. Wunderschön!
