It's Mine!

Monday morning - bright and early - the family and I trekked up to WEBS to make my big purchase. I went there expecting to come home with an Ashford Traveler. I came home with something completely different. I purchased a Lendrum Original Double Treadle Folding Wheel.As soon as we were home I had the box unpacked and the wheel set up in five minutes. It's was so easy to put together. I have spun nearly a whole bobbins worth. My yarn is getting more consistent as I go along! Practice really does make perfect (although, I'm not quite at perfect yet). Even though it's not what I had imagined I'd be spinning on, I LOVE it! I really couldn't be happier.

We even made a friend while we were there.... or Dad made a friend. This is Freddy... the friendly neighborhood cat who happens to hang out at WEBS occasionally. Look at those eyes! Freddy spotted Dad sitting down and jumped right up into his lap, making himself at home with no problem. This cat was not shy! (The dogs were waiting for us in the car. Needless to say they were oblivious that Dad was two-timing them!)

P.S. Any suggestions for a name for Mr. Lendrum is greatly appreciated.... Should she be a boy or a girl? I can't seem to decide.

Congratulations on your new wheel! I'm looking forward to reading about what you spin with it and what colors you choose.
