That is JOHNFALCONE carrying my Norm Hall Wheel to the car!
I can hardly believe it!! And so many things had to fall in place to even make it happen. Cara joked that it took a village to buy me this wheel, and that is the complete truth!
- First of all, Norm Hall had to make it.
- Then the first person he sold it to in 2005 had to put it back out there.
- Then I had to be walking through barn 35 with Kathleen on Sunday morning for her to stop and say I should ask if any of the wheels were for sale. (which by Sunday they never ever are – for that matter by 10:00 am on Saturday they usually are all spoken for).
- Then Cara had to have a check on her to actually pay for the wheel, since I didn't have that much cash and Norm hall doesn't do plastic. Thankfully Cara extended me a line of credit and handed me a signed blank check!
- Then Kathleen had to have her van at the festival since that wheel did not fit in my car.
- Then Lisa let me borrow her van so I could go and get the wheel from Kathleen's house since I didn't want to wait until Monday to have it in my clutches!
- And of course JOHNFALCONE had to be Mr. Wonderful and say go for it!
You are ONE lucky duck. That is the best wheel story I’ve ever heard. xox
………and…….Kim turned the wheel down first because the flyer was on the wrong side…sigh.
I am SO happy though that this lovely wheel worked for you….yay! I was so pained that the I just could not work with a right handed flyer, but I am so happy that she found her way to her new home. :)q
How did I leave that out??!! Yes, you had to turn it down first!!! and I am so happy you did! I have been spinning everyday (haven’t knit a single stitch!) and have one full and one half bobbin so far – can’t wait to try plying on it!
