More wheel love...


I gave my new baby a spa treatment last night with some Watco Danish Oil, and look at how she glows! I wish I was a better photographer so that I could adequately convey how lovely her wood is. I haven't come up with a good name yet, but she definitely needs a name. Any suggestions?

She is currently set up in double drive, which is new to me. I have only spun in single drive with Scotch tension (Schacht Ladybug, Ashford Traditional, a variety of Kromski wheels) and a little on a Hitchhiker which is direct drive.


And, she is just the right size to proudly sit on our small hearth, ready to spin at a moment's notice.

My hubby even likes her--bonus points!

I'm so excited for you. My friend Rondi spins yarn from her goats hair. I tried it once on her spinning wheel. I wasn't very talented at it. You yarnies are amazing.

Wow, she is beautiful!

Name suggestions:

Squee! (it's your word and it expresses great joy)

Gretchen (it seems to go well with Schacht), or Gretchen the Lovely!

Lydia! seller of purple and early Christian. Might she have had a spinning wheel?

I'm happy for you!
