I'm an idiot

First, a bit of shameless commerce. I just bought an Ashford Basic Jumbo Flyer (double drive) kit yesterday on impulse and once I got home realized that it's just not something I'm going to use. Fastest case of buyer's remorse I've ever had. Gah!

Box opened once, and I've barely even touched anything inside, so it's practically brand spankin' new. Includes jumbo flyer, whorl, four bobbins, front maiden, and I believe it also has a drive band, though I will need to double check. Can provide picture of contents if requested. Items are unfinished, so you can stain to match your wheel!

$110 includes shipping in the US, or make an offer. Paypal only please.

Non-commercial content - Did I mention this before? If you're going to the Dulaan knit-in on the 27th here in the Seattle area and want free fibers to spin, let me know and I'll bring some. Only caveat is that you use the resulting yarn in charity projects. I got not one but TWO boxes from the lovely person in Idaho who was stash culling, and I'm never gonna get through it all.

Not much else happening here. I was a total couch potato all weekend long and managed to get through the entire second season of SG1 in three days. I didn't think it was possible to have a sore ass from sitting around on it most of the weekend, but it really can happen.

It's not going to stop me from starting S3 tonight though. *G*

Sock knitting continues apace. The hotness that is RDA, Michael Shanks and Amanda Tapping is making it difficult to make progress. Too much drool is not good for metal DPNs, not to mention what it does to the sock. I'll try to muster up the wherewithall to stop with the terribly gauche drooling and make more progress pronto.

Happy Monday y'all!

I'll be there this weekend! I don't think I can take on any more spinning projects, but I can't wait to meet you in person.

Look for me, I'll be the one knitting.

Thank you again for carting me to and fro on Saturday! I really, really enjoyed meeting you and look forward to seeing you again soon! If I didn't scare you away for good, that is. :D

Nothing like a little sci-fi knitting. For me it's been Firefly and Battlestar Galactica lately. =)

Did you sell? Couldn't you just return to the store since it's unused?
