I've always had an Ashford wheel in my life since I learned to spin on a Kiwi. Later, I owned a Traveller for many years, but I've always wanted a wheel that produced a BIG skein. I even tried the jumbo-plying head for the Traveller and a Columbine wheel with no satisfaction. And while my current wheel, my Lehigh Valley, is a super wheel, I was still dreaming about producing the world's biggest skein. And the Country Spinner has a bobbin that holds TWO pounds. Yeah, TWO pounds. Woohooo.
Finally, my dream came true. Friday, "the package" arrived. The entire family was excited!

|"Uh, this doesn't look good. Not good at all."|
|Where did that corkscrew come from? Was it in the box??|
|"Um, I have a couple of extra screws here."|
Check out my first skein. It's a HUGE, thirteen ounce skein of Shetland wool.

Copper Moose where I purchased the wheel. The customer service was fantastic. I was very impressed when I emailed them a question on Saturday and got a response within a couple of hours. Also, the store offered free shipping and a bonus gift which was an extra bobbin...did I mention that the bobbin holds TWO pounds???
