Arrived on Friday night.  My newest room mate.  The box was so huge, and I am sure the delivery guy looked smug and suppressing a laugh.  

I chose the most basic type, a spinning wheel called Traditional made by Ashford in New Zealand.  At first I was planning to buy one that is narrower and takes less space, but when I tried it I didn’t like it that much.  It’s unfinished wood so I am going to have to finish the surface with oil, but it’s ok, for  I did not like the lacquered  wood either.

The bottom photo is the first skein I made with this wheel!
