She's here! She's here!

My wheel arrived this afternoon while I was putting the boys down for their naps. It only took me about 10 minutes to put her together, and I was happily treadling away after only a few more minutes of practice. It's pretty easy to keep the wheel spinning only in one direction (I had problems with that when trying other wheels). Here she is in all her glory:

I'm almost afraid to try out some roving, can you believe it? I have a sit n stitch tonight at La Petite Knitterie and I think I'll try bringing her. There are two other spinners there who will hopefully help out this hopeless newbie. Now to name her....She keeps whispering "Eleanore/Ellie" to me....

Wow! You got a Lendrum?! How do you like it? It's the other wheel I was considering before I bought my Ashford Joy...
