As far as what you should do with your money... I'm not sure how much debt you're in or how much your tuition fees are, but I would probably look at "how much" of a difference it would make if you did use the money to pay off your debts and tuition. I mean, if your debt/tuition could be paid off or significantly reduced by applying your money towards that, then I'd say get out of debt, but if it's only going to make a tiny bit of difference, I say get the wheel!!!

you'll love the minstrel, i still highly recommend it, i may never outgrow it so to speak. i can spin some dental floss singles or big slubby arty stuff on it, and everything in between. happy holidays to you! *big hugs from berlin*

I can understand your problem, but in my opinion, the advice from the first person here I think would be the better way... pay what you really have to pay, what is important and save the rest for the wheel.

This is hard as this little voice who is whispering 'I want it. Now!' can be so strong. And to buy something beautiful from received extra money is allways so much fun...

I hope, you had a nice Christmas and wish you a happy new year.

Well.... How about trying one out first? Anyone around who has the same wheel that will lend it to you for a short while? You could re-assess after a week and make an informed choice! I think you should buy a wheel-- but I want it to be the right wheel for you. :)

Well, I really think you have to do the practical thing. You have so much fluff, and it'd take up a lot less space if you were to spin it up into yarn. So really, the wheel will keep you from having to find a larger and more expensive flat, and is therefore the sensible choice.

Well, it's really difficult to give advice without knowing more, I think... only you could decide whether you will be able to manage all your finances without this extra money or not.
But I can only speak for myself and I LOVE my Kromski wheel! I have a Sonata, and one of its advantages is, that you can put it in its bag and it takes very little place, whenever you don't need it, while it is a "normal" wheel, not only a portable wheel...
It's your decision... but you see, I tend toward the wheel ;)

i cannot offer advice, but i can tell you what i would do. i would put aside the money into a savings account and use it to pay off the debt and/or tuition fee. i agree that it would be really nice to buy a wheel, but practically speaking, the money would be better spent lowering your CC debts. those interest rates are killer! ing direct has great high yield (and no-fee!) savings and checking accounts. i am not sure if they are available overseas, however. in the end, you should do whatever makes you happy. it's okay to spoil yourself every now and then. good luck making a decision!

2007-12-26T16:42:00.000+01:00

I'm not great with money, but if I were I would say pay off the debt. Be relieved of that and then you can save up for a wheel - you'll appreciate it more, right? I'm hoping for a wheel in 2008 - and to not create more debt - I will let you know how that works out.

Love the video - my 7-year-old keeps trying to peek:) So sparkly.

As someone with a small apartment, I, too, have a Kromski. The Mazurka. I'm a sucker for the detailed turnings.
As for the wheel/debt issue, get the wheel. For as much as you knit, you'd save money by making your own yarn. (Not really, but it SOUNDS like a good idea!)

2007-12-26T14:41:00.000+01:00

What about putting half of the money aside and save a little longer? And paying off the tuition fee and the debt a bit too?
This way you have something to start with for the wheel and still got some weight off your shouldes re: debts
O.k. that is the banker speaking out of me, but I have seen so many people beeing unhappy because they spent money they don't have and then there is unhappiness that can't be upweighted with the stuff they got.
