My neighbor was just here, bringing me a new addition to my wheel collection. Yes, it indeed is a collection by now.

It's an old model "Schippertje" - boatsman if you like.

He got it from his grandmother, and since he is a grandfather for a long time himself, this wheel is most certainly older than I am.


I will clean it and add a new driveband, and have a spin with it. Love the lazy kate - which is detachable - with FOUR bobbins.


  1. Spinning on the street has remembered of this beauty. It was hidden in an attic for years.
