Hello, Gorgeous!

Dear Mr. UPS Man,

I'm very sorry for practically ripping the box out of your hands yesterday, but I just couldn't wait any longer. Thank you for coming to make your delivery after I was home. You made my day!

Sincerely,
SJ




Lendrum Original, double treadle, complete package. 100% made in Canada. Took longer to open the box than to assemble. Spins like a dream (save for the fact that I don't entirely know what I'm doing).

How do I feel about my new wheel? That's easy.

How sweet! I have to admit that I often rub new yarn against my face in a loving fashion...

Please keep us up to date with all of your learnings and experiments with spinning.
