<envy for 5 days with new machine>
I'm sure you'll be set with the craftsy class! I have a chunky gauge hobby machine, a singer s9, and it's fun and easy to use. I don't love it with all my heart like the Passap, but i would be unwilling to part with it.
Speaking of loving things, I've been in a collaboration with Jennifer Schmidt and we have finally finished deciphering all the codes for the Form Computer (a 1980s "computer" that you program to give you knitting instructions as you knit). There were many patterns for this computer, which was also integrated into the Passap E6000 console, but some of them contain errors and others one might like to modify -- or at least check -- before you knit. Anyway Jennifer and I cracked the programming language! Read here: http://bikibird.com/formprogrammes.html
