I'm passing the Kazakhstan book on to my friend whose son is from there.

So I guess the photo rights belong to Spin-Off in perpetuity, huh?

I'm pretty interested in cotton spinning right now. I have an Indian charkha and a Babe Liten Spindle in addition to my flyer wheels. But I'm thinking about improvising something with an old bicycle wheel I have....

Did it take a long time to get the mini T-frame?

Deborah Robson

I got my mini-T a long time ago. I'd drop a note to Stephenie and Alden and ask about timing ( http://pweb.jps.net/~gaustad/ ). It's worth a wait. Budget permitting, ANY of their cotton-spinning tools would be a treat. I've also spun on a Bull Pup, which has the advantage of being accelerated (higher ratios . . . cotton likes lots of twist). Stephenie is incredibly knowledgeable about cotton spinning. She got me to love it!

What will you do with all the cotton you spin?

Deborah Robson

Thanks, Ted. PDFs always seem to be reluctant to make clean links, but I think I've fixed it.

The cotton I'm spinning? Just playing with a variety of kinds, mostly because I haven't spun cotton in way too long.


I haven't spent a lot of time with cotton. Maybe I need to work at it again.
I have books about it....maybe I should read them. Hee, hee.

Also, how do you find time for all of the things you do? I haven't read a whole book for myself in a long time. I don;t think the ones I read to the kids count. But I bought The Omnivore's Dilemma months ago and have only read the first few chapters. It's that pesky spinning and lace knitting always tapping my shoulder.
