I have a spinning wheel!

Well, it's official. I own a spinning wheel. A second hand ashford traveller to be exact. Or at least I will, come 2:15 on Tuesday afternoon when I go to pick it up. This is what will very soon become my precious. She will provide much distraction though...


She's missing a couple of bobbins, and most probably the instructions too, but the bobbins are easy to get and rather cheap to boot. And I have a feeling I'll be able to get the maintainance booklet rather easily.

So yes, very happy indeed!

I will post again when I've taken her for a test drive and I have at least a faint idea of how to use the little darling!

I read your post on the forum. I have also just won my first wheel, a used Ashford Traveller, on ebay. I have some sewing on deadline and some knitting to finish for new family babies before I can really work at this, but I'm excited.
