Great Wheel

I love the new wheel. It's commonly called a Great or Walking wheel, but is also known as a Wool or High wheel. This particular wheel is not only beautiful, but is completely functional and I'm really looking forward to learning how to use it - it requires a slightly different spinning technique.







Can you believe we got this five foot tall wheel AND a sheep in the car (Honda CR-V)?

Wow! It's gorgeous! I hope you'll get Saint Tim to take a video of you spinning on it so we can all see how this one works.

Can't wait to see the new family addition! Baaa!

I drive a crv too! I have never seen a working walking wheel! Congrats on the find! That is like a museum piece and you are going to spin on it? Amazing!

Do you know how to spin on one of these? I saw a brief demo on it once. I remember you stand up hence, the name walking wheel.

When I saw your wheel I immediatly thought of what life must have been like in the early part of our great America. You are a true pilgrim with the same skills.
