I can't believe it! I am getting a spinning wheel!!!
I am so excited! I spent some time yesterday looking at spinning wheels via the net. When my DH came home I presented my case. I was fully prepared to defend my wanting a wheel but I didn't have to...He said YES!!!! Based on what we have read on the net and our pocket book we have narrowed it down to two....The Ashford Kiwi (a little cheaper) and the Ashford Traditional (little more money but so pretty and has a lot of accessories that can be added later...or as I learn what they are actually used for!!!) His only thing was we had to buy it from our (not so local)lys (The Fold in Morengo) that sells a lot of spinning equipment so we could "test drive it" at the store and ask our questions. He wants to go Saturday so this is going to cut into my KH Knitting weekend :(
