What!?! A spinning wheel? Really??? March 2, 2006

Pretty soon a Babe’s Production Double Treadle in white is going to be residing with us.

I’m pretty much in shock. Mike and I have wanted a spinning wheel for over a year now. I’ve read so many posts on Knitter’s Review about the pros and cons of different wheels. We would love a Lendrum or a Fricke, but unfortunately that’s just out of our price range right now. The Babe met all of our requirements: Affordable, double-treadle, comes with bobbins and a lazy kate, generally good reviews for being a wheel constructed with PVC pipes. I’m sure this will just be our first wheel, but…wow…a first wheel! Now, to make sure our actual spinning passion matches that of our wanting to spin passion.

Pictures as soon as it gets here!
