After attending Yarn School this past Spring, I decided I needed a wheel. I had tried out a few, and liked the Louet S10 DT the best. However, I had also heard the the Lendrum DT was pretty great (and cheaper), so I knew I'd be testing that one out, too. I didn't exactly have the money lying around for it, so I waited. And waited. Luckily, a side job came up, which left me with the perfect amount of money (after taxes) to get myself one.
I went out to The Fold last Saturday and tried out a Louet and the Lendrum, and...I got the Lendrum. I've been spinning obsessively on it ever since. I didn't get the fast flyer or the plying head, but I'm pretty sure I will eventually. I don't really care for the lazy kate that came with it, so I might see if there's a way I can modify it to better suite my needs.
I've finished spinning up two things so far, and have a third on the wheel. Luckily, I had amassed a small fiber stash before I got my wheel. It also helps that Stitches Midwest is coming up in a couple of weeks.
BFL dyed at yarn school. 2-ply.
The same fiber as above. I Navajo plied the leftovers to try it out. These mini skeins came out great.
A wonderful merino/tencel blend from The Fold. This is currently drying at home, so I should have a final picture soon.
I purchased this at Stitches Midwest last year and it is spinning up like a dream. The fiber is local, so I'm definitely going to get some more of this this year.
