Dear people who encounter my corner of the Plusverse,

If a stranger walked into your house uninvited, shouted obscenities, threw things about, and left (or worse, got into an argument with other strangers who also showed up), you would probably not take kindly to it.

It's likewise unsettling to have someone you've never interacted with post a comment on G+ with lots of UPPERCASE and profanities, without so much as an acknowledgment that there is a person who posted that thing causing so much ire.

If you come onto one of my posts, guns blazing, expect to be blocked. Because you're being rude. And my portion of the Plusverse is not a democracy. I block people who are unable or unwilling to engage in civil discourse. This means I will not tolerate people attacking one another, making prejudiced comments, etc.

TL;DR -- don't be a dick.

Nice. I'm somewhat over 50. Recommendations noted. :)

Electric spinning wheel. No plans included, so just enjoy the artistry.
Ravelry is a community site, an organizational tool, and a yarn & pattern database for knitters and crocheters.

I have spun some more on my Babe Liten Spindel (pvc hand-crank wheel with a spindle, rather than a bobbin/flyer). I'm still having trouble with part of the cop wanting to come off the tip of the spindle - it seems to get worse if I try to wind the yarn on with tension... Then I end up with a floppy loop or snarl of yarn hanging off the spindle, that gets tangled with the yarn I'm currently adding twist to.

Also, this being sick thing has thrown off my sleep schedule, with added naps during the day making me wide awake at night.

Though I'm loving spinning while watching Outlander. The two seem to go together well.

I really enjoy packing a lot on a spindle and am finding that this one does not share this passion. I heard a very interesting bit of info when I was listening to the Knitmore Girls Podcast to this effect, according to Jenkins your spindle will work best with fibre weighing up to 3/4 of the ...

3D printed Turkish spindles! 4-armed nesting design, rather than the 2-armed typical design.

Spindle spinning mystery purple wool. I'm planning to cable it, for strength, as I'll be sewing a felt hat with it.

I love the look of Turkish spindles.
I promised last week that I’d show you the secret to winding all fancy-like on a turkish spindle. We used to make God’s Eyes in this pattern when I was a kid at camp. It was impressive even with coarse acryllic yarn wound around crossed popsicle sticks, and taking it to my big girl craftland with handspun …
