Just In!!!


Judging from the box, I would have to say my little friend has enjoyed his travels....from Washington State to Alabama!!!!

To save money, I ordered the wheel without a finish and had planned on placing a coat of polyurethene myself but I am now thinking that I may stain the wheel first. I do like the natural look, but after seeing a couple of stained wheels on blogs I'm thinking I may go with a stain.

I'll make a trip to Lowe's tomorrow and check out my choices.

Hopefully I'll have everything stained, poly-coated and assembled in the next few days!!

Yay!

When I stop being jealous, I'll be crazy happy for you.

Look at the stains that have a poly coat built-in. That might be an option for your new baby.

You're so crafty! The box looks wee tiny - about how tall is it?

Yah, the poly-coat with stain included might be a really nice option and get you on the road to spinning faster. ;-)

Yay the wheel is here! It looks like it had a good trip. I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out. I thought about staining mine but then changed my mind.

Hooray your wheel arrived. I'm sure you'll enjoy many spinning days. I find spinning is very relaxing!

Good luck with it and post some pictures of your first spun yarn!!

Hi there! I have a Kiwi and I absolutely love it! Good luck with yours! Cant' wait to see it all stained and see what you spin with it!

My first was a Kiwi! I miss it terribly, it's a great wheel. But the child needed a wheel, so that's the way it goes. Have you done the stain yet? Let's have a look at your first yarns, please.
