I can hardly wait to 'Learn to Spin' on my new Ashford Traveler Spinning Wheel...but first....
....I had to seal all the unfinished wood pieces. I must admit, it was a bit of a surprise to open the box and find so many pieces unassembled. Yikes, I hope I don't have any parts missing or worse yet have any left over.
From the looks of that wheel, I'm debating if I should hoist the main sail or play wheel of fortune. I may have to set sail to New Zealand before all is said and done. Now that's a thought!!
Already, I'm probably out of my element...they are talking RATIOS...#24. Thank goodness for the big 'X' for wrooong! I am sorta okay with some of the terminology since I learned in one of my two lessons what a 'lazy kate' is. It's a thingy that holds spools. There are 4 of them, and I'm not sure what they are for yet, but I hope to find out in lesson three.
You know what is really scary in this one of a zillion pages of assembly instructions?
