I was almost finished with the Tangerine Top when it happened. Hard to believe that it was only yesterday when I was engaging in lively Twitter banter with my clever tweeps regarding said serger.
RT @ojollyknits Can one be addicted to one's serger?/ Of course. And it's okay until you start cheating with someone else's.

@ojollyknits Yes! And it's not cheating, even if you use your standard sewing machine.My Tangerine Top was coming along nicely. I'd finished the asymmetrical neckline.

In the middle of sewing a sideseam, (which I had originally planned to sew with my sewing machine,) that sound happened. Alas, my serger has seized up. I'm unable to advance the machine with the handwheel. I had to remove the needles to get the Tangerine Top off the machine.
And my dealer is taking the long holiday weekend.
Update: Please read my post on Needles and Knits to read what may have caused this problem.
