I’ve been dreading this for at least 6 months now.
I got a really good deal on a Schacht Ladybug in January and I took the plunge. I love the wheel, but this meant that I had to think about keeping two wheels. I really wanted to! But I live in a small townhouse, and my “design studio” (aka guest room) and living room is now full of yarns and fabrics, I just can’t justify having 2 wheels at this point of my life.
So! With a heavy heart, here is my beloved Kiwi. I never named it. I guess it makes it easier.
I bought the wheel around May 2012, and loved it ever since. I cleaned it regularly with wood conditioner, and it works beautifully. I bought it unfinished, stained and finished all the parts, and everything works. I almost exclusively used the hi-speed whorl on mine but I have both regular and hi-speed whorls in here.
