Let's see if I can get everything answered smile

For icartaxo and KathieVt: You've done everything you need to do smile All that is needed is to register for the forum which you have already done. This is a very informal group, no sign up required.
On the second Saturday of each month I will post an article on the main Bella site and will post a link to it here in the forum. Or, you can sign up for the spinning newsletter if you like. The newsletter will tell you whenever I post a new article about spinning whether Virtual Guild related or not. The monthly article will be the "formal" part of our guild program for the month. I will also open a new forum thread each month (except December, no meeting in December as everyone is so busy with the holidays.) The monthly forum thread will be the informal part of the meeting where questions can be asked and answered and tips and info can be exchanged.

For June and laughingcrone: You (and everyone else) are welcome to define "wrap" any way you'd like. It's your project so it's really your choice smile The size of the project you chose does not matter....but yes, a larger project does require more yarn and more time spent spinning that yarn. My local (physical) group is doing wraps (scarves, shawls, etc) as we need to create a display for a local fiber arts show and we always like to have a theme.

For Nikki: Three projects? Way kewl! Yes, a carded preparation and a worsted spinning technique will give a semi-worsted yarn.
AT one end of the spinning scale, there are true worsted and at the other end, true woolens. Everything else falls in the middle and is called either a semi-worsted or a semi-woolen, depending on which spinning author's book you happen to be reading. To avoid confusion of this issue, which is really sort of a moot point as almost all spun yarns are semi-somethings, I suggest we call the entire "semi" category semi-worsted.

Forgot to add: I will probably be off line for 2 to 3 days starting tomorrow (Thursday). I've been having computer woes and my new computer should finally be here tomorrow and I'll have to load all the software...and I do mean ALL the software. Provided the thing works - the last new computer would not work and literally blew up while I was on the phone with tech support.

Llyn,

I know you can't answer right away, but when you get back...

I've got my patterns picked out and was wondering. (I hope the answer is in the first article you write when we started...specifically about picking wool for the project.) My pattern calls for 200 grams of worsted yarn. Since I'm going to prepare raw wool, AND I don't have a scarf I can weigh or measure, How does one go about figuring out just how much raw wool you need to wash for your choosen project?

Or am I way ahead of the group...I don't want to be way ahead, but was just thinking here and trying to decide how much wool to wash.

Hi Llyn,

I got interested in Bella Online because I liked your weekly articles....I sure don't know how to find those articles. Do or can you tell me where to look for the Weekly articles you've written?

Thanks...Nikki in Colorado

Hi Llyn,

Never mind, I was able to answer my own question. I found the articles I wanted to review under Spinning fundamentals.

Thanks for writing these articles. It will be a great review for me to read them again. Oh and I did also find the Articles on How to determine how much fibre I need and then How much yarn I will need for my projects, so now I have something to read while waiting for our 1st meeting.
