clear as mud now... and thank you for the suggestion on making a bag with my first yarn... I had so many ideas that my husband said, " why don't you just make something and get it over with". okey dokey consider it done.
I am feeling less of a newby now.

Single or double treadle is a personal preference.

Some spinners like the single treadle because they can more easily position the wheel to their liking. With a double treadle, you need to be sitting square with the wheel.

My two main wheels (Kromski Sonata & Ashford Traveller) are both double treadle. Since they are castle style wheels with the orifice in the front, the double treadle is wonderful.

I have had a couple saxony style wheels that were single treadle. I haven't spun on a double treadle saxony, but think it would be awkward since the orifice is to the left of the treadles.

I am seeing some of the wheels have treadle conversion kits to add a second... maybe that is the route to take. When we go to Ohio I am going to look for a place that I can either go for instruction or at least test out a few wheels.
Due to the weather out breaks in our route to Ohio we may have to leave later in the month than we have planned. These tornadoes are so terrible. It is all bringing back memories of the Xenia, Ohio. That storm left debris from Xenia in my back yard. It was awful.
I hope all our friends are safe.
