Too Many Wheels.

That's it. I now officially have Too Many Wheels. Also, I want to buy a set of wool combs and they're far too expensive for my current equipment budget so I've decided to sell a couple of wheels to raise the money for combs.

First wheel up for sale is my Frank Herring Saxony wheel. Complete wih six bobbins, original orifice hook, on-board Lazy Kate and instructions for both use and assembly. Can be used wit either Scotch Tension or double drive.



And the completely refurbished Ashford Mk1 Traveller that I spoke about recently. (This is the "before" picture, I hasten to add. It's a lot cleaner now.) Three bobbins and an on-board Lazy Kate. Scotch Tension.



I'm currently in the process of taking pictures and writing up a description of each before I put them on Ebay next week. Might put them on Ravelry too. I just wanted to give you, my faithful readers, the chance to express any interest in either wheel first.

Temptress! However I can't actually fit another wheel in my flat with out loosing all the remaining floor space!

Temptress! is right! Only I don't think I could afford the postage to the U.S. *sigh* One day.

I think I would sell nearly all of my wheels, too, to buy those combs. Creme de la creme!

ooooh the herring... but Linda's right. Shipping to the US would be painful.
