Spun some more of DMIL’s red/black blend, and while I really like this fiber, I’m having some trouble with the take-in on my Jensen Tina II. I’m thinking that the very first thing I need to do is pull things apart and give it a thorough cleaning. I’m sure the shaft and other parts are gunked up… and it’s been a while since I’ve conditioned it with any lemon oil. Bad Annie!
Maybe that would be a good activity for the evening we hold the SBSTT at my *new* house in November. Wheel-Cleaning ala Alden’s bible. I’ve got most of the stuff we’d need, and the right type of space to do it in….
So I’m itching to spin and knit, especially since folks on the ST list were so great and posted their interpretations of that Lion Brand Yarns pattern I was having such trouble with. I think I can figure it out now.
I am _so_ ready for this holiday weekend to start!!!
