This week has seen some long awaited packages delivered

The first to arrive was the Straunch Ball Winder. To wind bigger balls. Solid and sturdy in Wood. I really love it.

Next up after a very long wait this Thursday the New Spinning Wheel arrived in a box a second box with a number of accessories (Bobbins and Flyers) came in a seperate box. The same delivery also bought two packages from Wollmeise. I had been waiting on orders from both the 1st of October and 8th of October. Unfortunately this all arrived as I was walking out the door. So they sat in the hallway until later.
I did open the Wollmeise one package from each of the 1st and the 8th (2 from the 1st and 1 from the 8th were still to come).

On the left Ballerina in Twin and on the Right Magnolie Dark in 100%

As Thursday night is Knitting group I didn't get a proper chance to assemble the wheel until tonight but did manage to unwrap it last night and peek in the boxes.

Tonight I got home from work and started to assemble the wheel. Some of the parts were a little tricky to get the angles and line up the holes for the screws but she came together quite quickly and I was spinning in no time. My first spin below Ewe Give Me The Knits Club Fibre.

Kid in a candy shop or what! Any pics of the ball winder in action? Would just love to see how big it is out of the box, I'm eyeing that one off, for when I finally tear myself away from my hand wind method and succumb to non-rolling-away-under-lounge yarn cakes.
