Pocket Wheel

After almost a year of waiting, my pocket wheel finally came home. He is made of cherry and weights just 7 lbs. He takes full-sized bobbins and can spin thin yarn just like the big guys. His highest ratio is only 10:1, but because he treadles effortless, I can compensate for the low radio by pedaling a bit faster.

He was born in Washington but he takes the good life in California like duck to water. Here he is, enjoying the California sun and getting a nice tan.
