Rare GARTER BAR for the mid gauge knitting machines

I have a (very rare, and hard to find) garter bar for the mid gauge machines Silver Reed SK160, SK860, and the LK140 and LK150, for $175.00. It is in shiny new condition, however the box for it isn’t in real good shape, the boxes were really flimsy to begin with…

Buy both the STANDARD GAUGE GARTER BAR and the MID GAUGE GARTER BAR, and I will pay first $8 of postage cost. Payment by check or money order, and I will mail as soon as payment clears. I will be listing lots more as I can, so if you are looking for something, let me know. Reply with zip code for postage quote.

FS: Afghans for all Seasons crochet book

This is book 4 from Oxmoor House publishers.  Hard bound and contains 49 of the most beautiful afghans I’ve ever seen!  I have been holding onto this book, hoping my right arm would get better, but likes it isn’t going to, so having to stick with knitting. I don’t know why crocheting is so painful for me, as I can knit for hours and hours, day in, day out, but it is, so time to let go, and move on with my knitting.

$5.00 + media mail postage (or, if you are in a hurry, I can mail it priority for $5.75

I will be adding more crochet books and magazines as I come to them, so, if there is anything you are looking for, let me know, and I will give you first chance at it, if I have it.

FS: SR-120 Ribber Carriage

If you bought an SR-120 ribber and then find out the carriage is missing, I have this one for sale!

It is in nice working condition, isn’t dirty, but could use some cleaning, due to dust.  I’ve tested all of the levers, buttons and such, and all are in great working condition.
