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.
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 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!
