Ecstasy: Finally finishing Bill Withers' lovely grey mohair given to me by dear Lauren.
Ecstasy: Actually seeing the beautiful cable yarn I've envisioned take shape from one ply of Bill Withers and two plies of red Wensleydale.
Agony: Having my driveband jump off my wheel every few seconds because the groove on my bobbin doesn't line up with the groove on my drivewheel!
By putting a book under the back of the floor supports to tip my wheel forward, the driveband isn't popping off QUITE so quickly. THIS is the reason I'm putting up with the frustration:
I LOVE this yarn! I'm calling it "Rubies and Rain Clouds." I don't know yet what I will knit with it; I'll have to see how much I end up with. I ALMOST did a two-ply in order to stretch my yardage, but am really glad I stayed with my original three-ply plan; the round result is very appealing to me.
That's it for now at . . .
