Oh and Fi, I got mad out of the box because they redid the Matchless ST setup without updating the manual, even on their website, so I had to facebook message people for pictures just to figure out how to do it. The band just flopping off made me start swearing like a sailor though. I was like, seriously - $1k for a wheel and they can't be troubled to update the 6 page crappy black and white manual?

I DO like the new drive band setup though, because it's not knotted OR heat fused, I can take it off and switch to ST or DD and keep my nice measured band without an issue. I'm going to set up the Ashford like this before I sell it to make life easy for the new owner.
Have you sold the ash ford yet?

Re: KAL ~ Knit for FALL! Sept 9 - Sept 15

hey no problem! I just got lost in all the wheel talk I'm sure if I had one or knew someone who wanted to teach me then I wouldn't be lost

my former bil's sister spins...no clue what she has but I need her to spin for me. I guess it has just been sitting in the corner for ever. WHAT! She lives 2 hours away or else I'd be over there begging her to teach me

Speaking of wheels: what do yall think if this one?
eta: what should I ask her about it? I mean, are there certain things to ask to make sure I'm not getting a lemon?

I have a buyer lined up, we'll do the actual purchase at OFFF, but I've confirmed with her she wants it and she has money set aside for it.

It looks good. Maybe just ask about maintenance she's done, age of the wheel, and if there are any extras, i.e. extra bobbins, lazy kate?

I'm definitely going Saturday, Sunday was a hopeful. If you CAN go Saturday that would rock.
