After lusting after wheels forever, I found a 1972 Ashford traditional wheel for $85 in an antique store, and in perfect working condition no less! During a lesson from a friend who spins, I was able to finish my first skein, at about 6oz. I had a lot of issues with overspinning, but with my second skein I have already seen improvement with that! And so, without further ado...

Hooray!!!  Great skeins!  Great deal on the Traddy.  Make sure you oil her well.  They are work horses.
