Ladybug, ladybug

This is a Schacht Ladybug spinning wheel. It is mine. I put it together last night and spun & plied a sample skein in about half the time it would have taken me with a spindle, and with no crick in the muscles between my shoulders from having my left arm raised for an hour or more. I think I am going to have a lot of fun with this gadget.
