My birthday is next week, and I've been itching to buy a spinning wheel.  So I did.  i ordered a babe production wheel, double treadle.  I can't wait!!!  anyone who has this wheel, I'd love your advice/input. 

thanks!

OK, so here it is... and I kinda love it. I put it together in 10 minutes and it's lightweight with a small footprint.  Currently it's set up in my dining room, which is why the lighting is so bad in the pics.




Here is my first 2 ply yarn, hot off the wheel!!
