So Excited!

I've ordered a new Spinning Wheel.

For portability, and my budget, I chose The Prelude from Kromski . Mine is the unfinished model so I will be staining and sealing it myself. I like that it has a built-in Lazy Kate and pretty wood turnings. Because it has the look of an antique wheel it can be used by re-enactors too.

Trying to stay as local as possible I decided to buy my Prelude from Rooster's Run Farm. David and Pam Hoover from Salem, Indiana are my closest Kromski dealers. Besides selling Kromski products the Hoovers also raise and sell Shetland and Finn Sheep plus Angora goats. They attend many of the fiber events in Indiana and sometimes local Farmers Markets too.

Next Wednesday is the pickup date. I'll have the whole day to get it stained and ready to go. 
I. Just. Can't. Wait.

LOL! It's the little things, isn't it? My advice is to hide it from Christine or slip a microchip in it somewhere! Just sayin'....

Microchip?! LOL, Nice. While it's true, I've wanted one of these for awhile, I promise to keep my paws off.
