I am a geek.

I am on the market for a balance to weigh yarn, fiber and dye. Since I work in a lab, I have been turning my nose up at the kitchen scales I've seen. Couldn't I buy an entry level, bottom of the line lab balance? Then I started thinking about all the potential fiber uses for lab supplies and compiled a lengthy list of items I need. I went to VWR but I was getting confused by pricing and couldn't easily compare similar items. Wouldn't it be nice if I just had a catalog?


They sent little old me a catalog! A huge hardcovered catalog of my very own! This excites me more than is reasonable. I can't afford much of anything but it's still fun to look through. Bill thinks I'm probably on a federal watchlist now. (For the record, the lab balance is utterly out of the question. I'll have to settle for the kitchen scale variety. Sigh.)

Bob wanted me to order from them too. Until he saw the prices.... Oh, a scale... hmmm. Yep. I might need one of those.

Jenn, I bought several scales off of ebay for weighing out materials for glaze and clay. You can get a really good deal. Check it out! =)
