[singlepic id=131 w=320 h=240 float=left]Well, not *really* a baby. But she’s my new wheel. Bought from Ebay, and picked up today.
She’s an Ashford Traveller, Double Treadle, Double Drive/Scotch Tension. Fairly young, and has been white washed by her previous owner.
I’m thankful that it’s a newish wheel, and the price was very good. Because the wheel needs a lot of work. The white wash was done while partially assembled, so is splotchy and uneven. While we’ve taken her apart and given her a wash down (she was grotty) and a light sanding, she’ll be coming apart again REAL soon for a full strip down and beautifying. But I’m working on some spinning first, you know… to make sure she works well … hehe.
She doesn’t have a name yet, but I’m sure we’ll figure that out in good time.
