Thanks everyone, for sharing in my excitement

I keep going back and forth. WooLee Winder or no WooLee Winder? Getting one would mean I have to wait a week or two and see if more donations come in, which would be nice but of course involve a lot more spinning. I swear, if I could reach these people I would have ordered it already. But I'm having a hard time getting ahold of them.

And get this, I even went to take the donation button off the blog last night and Blogger wouldn't let me. I edited the template and it simply would not let me publish, no matter what I did. So is it a sign that I should hold off for a few days?

Hey Julie, Went to your blog but didn't see the wheel button so it must have finally worked to remove it.

I've read several blogs who stated they didn't feel they needed the woolee winder because the winder on there is so easy to use but I still wish I had the bucks to get the woolee.

I just called woodland woolworks. They have the double treadle in stock, it will ship tomorrow. I get a pound of corriedale, wood wax, wheel oil, AND $20 craft cash to spend later. $289 with shipping.

Your yarn is so beautiful. If you've got the dye for a gorgeous deep red I'll donate too!! Paula

Thanks for the info Paula...I e-mailed Woodland yesterdaya nd they haven't responded to me yet. But now that I know that they have them, and they won't be waiting on the (unreliable) home office, I went ahead and ordered too :D

Hope they have more than one in stock!

Really, those who have them speak so highly of them...I think it's worth the risk. I don't really have anywhere to test-drive wheels that aren't $850 (the closest fiber shop to me only carries Schacht Matchless wheels) so I was going to have to buy without trying anyway.
