i have found that straight boiled linseed oil never really dries. down here in south la. even winter can be warm. so, try cutting your linseed oil 50/50 with turpentine. dries faster and doesn't get sticky. one warning! have used mineral spirts instead of pine squeezeings and darn near burned the barn down. my old shop teacher was right about oily rags!

Does using turpentine instead of mineral spirits weaken the cloth? I've heard that from people that used it, but don't have any first hand experience.
