I bought a wheel
I think I should get an award for be impulsive. I went on ebay to see what wheels were going for and ended up buying a LouetS10. I hope I did ok. It comes with a skeinwinder and I bought it for $295 including shipping.

Mine was pretty impulsive, too. Turned out to be a wonderful buy. I'm sure that you will enjoy the heck out of it. Congrats on the wheel!!!

wheel
Way to go, Jeremy! My sort-of-impulse wheel just got dropped on my doorstep by those nice men in brown today.

I'm feeling better now. I still haven't heard from the seller. Maybe I should e-mail him to see when I can expect delivery. Hope you like your wheel. Keep us posted.

Congratulations! I don't have one, but I've heard lots of good things about the S10.

Impulse buys are fun sometimes. I do it occasionally, but most of the time, my husband has me trained to really, really mull over a big purchase first. Darnit.

I test drove one of those. Very nice! Good price too, especially with the skeinwinder.

Let us know what you think?

I hear you, Kristen.
DH has been wonderfully supportive of my fiber arts. I've given a list to Susan McFarland (susansfibershop) of big ticket items ... of course, DH has given a list to blacksmith & trapper supply places for me!
Sure makes gift shopping easier though!
