ain’t it perty?!?!
-want to try beaded yarn
-Spinning yarn from different clumps of colored roving to create a cool multicolor yarn!

How to Make a Lazy Kate:
supplies: shoe box, 6 knitting needles or dowels
-Insert knitting needles through the box in this design. make sure the two ouside needles are high enough that your bobbin will have room to spin on them (ie. if they’re bigger bobbins, move the needle on the far left and far right higher up)

-When you put your bobbin onto the holding needles (the two outside needles), be sure that the yarn is coming off of the bottom of the bobbin. if it comes off of the top, it won’t tension correctly. with the yarn (coming off of the bottom of the bobbin, right?) go up and over the next needle, then down and under the final needle. do a mirror image of this on the other side, and you’re ready to ply!

Run out of bobbins? NO PROBLEM! wind your singles onto a toilet paper tube! fortunately, these work in the make shift lazy kate as well!!! either wind them by hand, or if your winder lets you, wind them straight onto the toilet paper tube:

i actually wind mine straight off the spinning wheel’s bobbin without the brake line on, or if i want to make it easier, i load the bobbin into my lazy kate box and wind from there because it’s tensioned! yeah!!!

now, don’t you feel smart?!?!

My Favorite Thing:
I have naturally curly hair, and i LOVE LOVE LOVE Jessicurl Hair Products. I’ve been using these same products for about 9 or 10 months now, and i love it! owen and i both use it. i don’t spend money on random products anymore that just get used once and live under my sink full. I love the Gentle Lather Shampoo, Rocking Ringlets Styling Solutions, and Confident Coils. For my conditioner, I just use Natures Gate Aloe Conditioner.
You Have the Right to Remain Curly
-other tricks, Shampoo only a scalp and finger comb suds through your hair. your hair will be less dry, smoother and shinier. otherwise, rinse with cold water upside down at the end of your shower. and i totally suggest “Plopping” or “Plunking”. Check out the videos they are extremely helpful!!!
okay, enough hair stuff!!!

    ooooh! LOVE your sugar plum yarn! It’s so pretty! Man–I really didn’t want to get hooked into spinning! Ugh! You temptress you….

    Meghan – I really love your podcast!

    The most important thing for me on this episode is the hair thing. I learned some of what you talk about in the hair category when I was a dog groomer and transfered my shampoo/hair knowledge to my own hair. I’ve been using that info for over 30 years. What I didn’t know that I learned as a result of your podcast is that I have curly hair! Why I didn’t know that is a result of always blow-drying my very thick and long hair and that my curls are relaxed. But, after doing the stuff recommended on the Jessicurl site, there they all were! This was even with my current hair products.

    Needless to say I plan on buying Jessicurl and changing what I do. And I have you to thank for it.

    I just finished listening to your podcast and I wanted to share another way to ply your yarn. Wind your single onto your ball winder and then making sure you have both ends slip the ball off the winder and insert you thumb into the center of the ball. Taking both of the ends run them back through your spinning wheel and begin plying the single back on itself. I love this type of plying because there is no left over yarn like there is when you ply off of bobbins. I have also used this technique with a drop spinndle it works great. This technique is call “Center Pull Plying.”

    Meghan, I really enjoy your podcast. Your personality shines through and you’re fun to listen to.
    I loved the hair stuff and would love to hear about henna–my hair is wavy and thick and getting gray, darn it!
    Gorgeous yarn, too.
    And your vinegar suggestion of a few episodes back is incredible. My husband even tells his co-workers about vinegar now!

    Thank you Megan!!
    I’m a fairly new spinner and I couldn’t figure out why I was having so much trouble plying! This podcast solved the problem for me. I needed a tensioned lazy kate, and had no money to buy one. Thank’s to you, a shoe box, and my dusty aluminum needles, I’m plying like no one’s business and it’s coming out perfect!! Thanks Teach!!
