Her name is Brygitta. I think it’s a very pretty Polish name. (I wouldn’t tell her otherwise, because she seems a little testy right now ;-))
It’s taking me a little getting used to, but I think I’m learning quickly. Right now I have her set on scotch tension, because the double drive was pulling too much for me, and I couldn’t figure out how to adjust it.
Here’s a pic of the assembly:
The packaging is Polish newspaper/magazine pages! My DH loved it – he can practice his Polish!
And here’s my first spinning on her:
It’s some Agate Colonial roving that I got from the Smoky Mountain Spinnery.
I’m so happy I got Brygitta! She’s a beautiful thing! Based on my 1+ hours of spinning on her, I definitely recommend a Kromski Mazurka wheel.
