You made a smart decision, Vi.....you got the wheel at a good price. (At least that's the excuse I'm using. Every place else wanted more than we paid so that's good, right? And who knows how much more they might be in a couple more months....)

I wonder if they take lay-a-ways?

Have to tell you, Vi...the Mazurka is sooooooo pretty and delicate! Mine is fairly elderly and it has the most amazing patina. And the little wooden pegs that hold it together are fascinating. Who needs woodscrews?

okok
but aren't you in arizona?
I am in pa
that is a LOT of wear and tear on the broom you know.....
ok this is how carole taught me
she put crap yarn on the bobbin.... and gave me the ball and had me just get used to treddling
and feeding the crap yarn into the orifice
( it was orange acyric.....
then she gave me some corriedale
and in about 20 minutes I had laceweight singles
( remember I drop spindle.......so I can draft)

just treddle first
take it easy
and make a nice bunch of designer 'intestines'
that's what my very first yarn looked like

you can always felt it later


.........now
val
I loves ya...but you have to stop dangling that mazurka in my range of vision.....

bernie will keel over if I tell him...
go
buy a second wheel

then I would have to come live by you...
cats, chickens, fish, goaties and sheepies

Congrats! I'm taking a spinning class on January 14th - so I would imagine a wheel will be in my near future too...

kelly try and spin on a lendrum.....
and if you try a kromski remember they need a ton of oil
I was not impressed on the kromski's I spun on....but they were new and not oiled

the folks here clued me in.....so maybe down the road I will get a mazurka
I really think that is a very pretty wheel....

the only time I've spun was on a lendrum and I enjoyed it - we get to use wheels at the class so we'll see what those are.
I'm excited!
And good for you for ordering the wheel! how fun!
you should blog a picture when it arrives!
