I can say that I’m slightly addicted to the spinning. This is about 1.5 oz of fiber spun up so far. I’ve been doing a little bit in the morning and a little bit in the evening. Not as much as I want because I’m trying to clean the house and get things ready for Thanksgiving this week, so the spinning is having to sit idle for a bit.
Some of you commented and asked where the ladybug was on my wheel. Here she is! Near the right hand handle behind the wheel. So cute!
I have learned that oiling is critical for a new wheel and that I need to oil it everytime I sit down to spin. I was having a noise that I couldn’t figure out and turns out I just didn’t use enough oil. It is now spinning relatively quiet! Now I need to make a felted spinning stuff holder for the wheel so I can keep my orfice hook and oil closer at hand.
Until next time!
