Here she is!

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 ;-))

(Ignore the pile of laundry in the background! ::blush::)

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.

I’m off to spin some more!
