I have not just been salivating over my loom! I have been productive…I’m not sure what to do with what I have produced, but I have been productive!
It has been a great deal of fun learning more about my Ladybug and how she likes to work. One of the main lessons I have learned is that she works best when she is well oiled and every part of her is as tight as I can get it. I hate to admit I need a new screw for her orifice since I accidentally took out the original piece that sized everything down a bit. (That little plastic bead is in there for a reason, do not remove it!) Other than that mistake on my part she runs like a dream. Spinning ultra fine on her is not something that I have managed to perfect, especially with the realization that I do not knit, crochet, or probably weave, with ultra fine yarns. I do realize that I can get amazing definition and beautifully intricate structures using ultra fine yarn, but shoot, I can also make some beautiful structures and amazing definition with fine or double knit (DK) weight yarns too. Right now my yarns are falling around the 2-3 on the weight scale. I did manage to spin up 2 bobbins that equaled over 250 yards
