New Spinning Wheel on the Horizon





Cindy's wheel is due to be delivered TOMORROW!!! But it is a Christmas present so she won't get it till Christmas morning!!!!


Check out her blog...she is absolutely TICKLED to pieces and I am so excited for her!! Even if I am just teensy weensy bit jealous....this is a N.I.C.E. wheel!!!
Double drive and will carry her from beginning spinning though any fiber she should want to spin without having to purchase any additional upgrades. Cindy ordered her wheel with the Walnut finish.

I want one too!!!!!!!!!!!!



I also haven't had a chance to spin on Bibby's new wheel either!!!! Bibby got the Ashford Traveler double drive!! I L.O.V.E. this wheel !!!!! I love the larger treadles, I just like everything about it!!! Bibby ordered her's unfinished so she could finish it like she wanted......which she did an awesome job!!!



I want one too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



I am T.H.I.N.K.I.N.G. (just thinking mind you)



about buying a used Ashford Traditional wheel......I like the clean looks of this wheel and it doesn't take up much space. I typically don't like anything modern looking....I like traditional or antique....which the Kromski Prelude is an awfully big temptation.....but this one has the option of ugrading to a double drive if I so choose in the future.


I have been VERY happy with my little Kiwi, so much so that I don't want to part with it!!!! I guess this is how folks end up with several wheels!!

We'll just have to see.....it is getting close to Christmas and if I had known before SAFF I wouldn't have spent all my mad money there....but this is a really good deal and I hate to pass up a good bargain!!!


Please feel free to share your thoughts about the Traditional if you have one or know someone that does!!!
I am on the fence about what to do!!!!!

People seem to like the Ashford Traditional. I have an Ashford Elizabeth and I love it. I haven't used a Traditional though. If you do get it, the Kiwi can be your travel wheel. :)

You can never have too many wheels. I truly believe that. :)

I'm really glad you're loving your Kiwi now, too. :D

Oh my gosh! This spinning thing is catching! Just how much encouragement did you have to give them? Hmmmmm?
