That looks a very nice wheel. I would be pleased with one of those myself.
Enjoy your spinning, you deserve it.

Excellent choice  :thumbsup:

If by any chance you don't get on with it, it's such a popular wheel you'll resell it no bother.

We shall love to see pics of your first yarn  :)

I'd be interested.  Not that I hope you don't get on with it, you understand.   :innocent:

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR,  :rant: :rant: :rant: :rant:
The lady I ordered the wheel from. rang me earlier to say that fed ex had some how managed to lose the parcel, and that they didn't know where it was, so it would not be being delivered today, as tomorrow is a holiday it may or may not arrive on Saturday, if not, Monday is a holiday and again it may or may not arrive on Tuesday, the lady was very upset, as she said fed ex had always delivered the parcels she sent on time.
It just had to be me that it happened to, I wanted to play on my wheel all weekend, so I am seriously P#$$ed off, looks like I'll be carding wool all weekend instead!!!!!!!!!!

Oh Sue, thats a bummer.  I am always impatient for something new so this must be really frustrating for you.

Carding wool is so good for getting rid of frustrations and just think how much more you can practise on your delightful new wheel when it finally arrives.

Don't know what my carded wool will be like, just feel like bashing the carders together and ripping the wool out of them  :gloomy:, may have calmed down a bit by tomorrow and get some done.  :fc:

How frustrating.  Hope it turns up on Saturday and, at least you'll have plenty of prepped fleece to spin.
