that was fast - AA already responded to this morning's email (usually it takes 24 hours or so....he must have had a free moment to check the 'puter).
I'm going with a 28" Cansax (that's Canadian Saxony, for those not "in the know"...it took me a minute, too..especially when he mentioned the reasons I *don't* want the Amsax...:grin:), with extra flyer array. It's well under the base price of the 36", which is good - more free funds for wool! - even with the added flyer and shipping.
I'm also on the cancellation list (although I honestly can't see *anyone* cancelling an order for one of his wheels - to each his own, I guess!), just in case 1 comes up before he gets to me. At this point, I don't know what the wait list is....his webpage says 12 - 18 months for the Cansax, so I figure 24 months is average. (Not to mock him - he's busy, and he's a true artist; very particular about what leaves his shop. My Scottish wheel took right at 9 months - I ordered it about 2.5 months before I got preggers with Herself, and it was delivered 3 months before she was born. The Norwegian took 36 months - but part of *that* was me not really knowing what I wanted, and Alden having to "lead" me in the right direction. :lol:)
Now, we wait on the IRS......hurryhurryhurry...
