While I was thinking of it, I decided to clean both wheels with a bit of Murphy's Oil Soap (5) and a damp cloth to remove any dirt which might have accrued, concentrating especially on the treadles. After everything dried, I used a little wheel wax (6) to condition the wood. I also am keeping this cute little bottle of spinning wheel oil (7) handy for any squeaks which pop up - note the long needle-nose tip for easy application! Most of these tools can be bought at a hardware store or Target; I did purchase Rosie's wheel wax and spinning oil from the Woolery.
I am hoping that I can find the time to set up my Ladybug in double drive at some point during this event (perhaps one of the challenge days?), so I am keeping the string which came with my wheel at the ready (2) just in case I am emboldened to try something new. I would also like to finally use the 3-D printed Turkish Spindle I bought from Turtle Made on Etsy (4); this is certainly a great excuse to give it a try, especially if I somehow manage to fill all of my bobbins and need something else to do before plying.
