Isn’t She Beautimous?

I came home last night to find that the husband has completely assembled my new spinning wheel.  It is actually my first ever spinning wheel, and I have to confess, I’m a little bit nervous about entering new territory.

Isn’t she pretty?


She is a Fricke S-160 double treadle.  And, I just happen to have this beautiful roving, it’s Blue Face Leicester and it’s very soft and creamy, on hand and waiting to be spun.


It’s going to be a fun weekend at my house!

  1. Wowie Zowie!! You are So way ahead of me!!! Can’t wait to hear all about it & see the magic……
    Big Congratulations on your new addition!

  2. How exciting to have your first spinning wheel. I have seen them at fairs and they look like you need a lot of patience. But they look like fun. I can’t wait to see your yarn you make with it.

  3. Hi there, I’m from The Yahoo Spinning group.
    HAVE FUN! I remember my first wheel…those where some great days. Don’t be afraid to just go to town with no “goal” in mind. I think I made a felted something with my first yarn. My kids’ first yarn of course is kept in their baby books.

  4. love the new “toy”!!!!!! awesome and can’t wait to see all the fun new things created!!! and love Ollie and the roving!!!! great!
