Older Louet- S-10 Spinning wheel for sale

Rest assured this is NOT my wheel LOL I will never part with my beloved Louet.
This is a trade in wheel from an older customer of mine. It is an older Louet s-10 manufactured early 80's under license by Louet by another Ontario company now that is now gone.  The bobbins are very nice -barely used. I replaced the footman connector so it's good to go.

Asking $275 can deliver to Fingerlakes Fiber Festival in  September or Rhinebeck NY in October.

When everything else is going wrong -SPIN!

So things have been chaos around here lately - Daryl ended up at emergency Saturday night with metal in his eye-he's better now but 5 + hours sitting there is enough to make anybody stir crazy. Add other stuff and I need stress relief big time -what better than spinning. Its peaceful and solitary and so fun!! And with fall shows coming up yarn is always a great thing to have on hand.
Here's this weeks works ready for washing - I have another couple on the go as well including this lovely beige cashmere gifted to me from a friend.   I have an idea for a long cardigan when it is done but it could take a while to spin all that laceweight.
HUGS all

They're only babies!!!

5 weeks old and look at the coats!!! Blue Boy is going to Virginia to be herd sire there. Broken Lilac Doe is staying here. There is also a Black doe(pictured)  and a broken black doe in this litter. Very very pleased!
And the little bundle of tude  aja the broken fawn boy is also staying here -he's part of a litter of 9 and I just could not resist his posturing and foot thumping at me.

Its that time of year again -my life has gone to the dogs :)

Its the annual Kingston Sheep Dog trials again. I LOVE watching the dogs, seeing all the fun and interesting dogs people bring with them, Unfortunately I have to work Friday and Sunday night so that cuts time shorter there but we'll deal :)
I would love to bring Java and the Dutchman there but neither is overly social with other dogs that do not belong to "their" family.
Pictures coming when I figure out where the camera is.
