Lovely :)

I really must get mine out of hibernation! I've been so busy with knitting projects I haven't dug him out. Doesn't help he's in the bedroom because there isn't room in the living room so I forget about him.

I would SO love to try spinning - (sighs) maybe one day, when I have time and space...
Still not sure what I want to be when I grow up

Beautiful! Looks like an ashford traddy, same as mine except mine is stained black - I love the colour of yours! Do you know how old it is? Mine's from about '87 I think making it only two years younger than me :D

Its an Ashford Traditional from around the late 70's early 80's. I starter spinning on the same wheel and loved it, though it has long since gone to a new home for another beginner to practice on. Excellent wheel and very easy to spin on.
