After three weeks of waiting (and technical errors with the supplier), my biggest birthday present – big enough to rival what I got from Nil – arrived!!!!
It’s an Ashford Traveller Single Drive and completely assembled already with four bobbins and an integrated lazy kate. I had to pull out my spinning reference book to check on a couple of things but otherwise, it’s all good to go for some practice session and in time, some good old-fashioned wheel spun yarn! A great addition for the store really…
The real people to thank for this awesome gift are my parents, actually. They sent over some money and I used a portion of it on this wheel. This baby is not huge at all…in fact, it’s about 45 cm wide and less than 20 cm deep. So, Mum & Dad, thanks heaps!!!!
I’ll have a contest soon for picking a name for this little baby. I just need to think of a prize (probably one of my handdyed yarns or rovings)! What do you guys think? Should I have a contest or not?
