Socks for my sister......this is the Spring Forward Pattern from Knitty, knit with STR yarn.....and in my usual fashion have NO clue what I did with the ballband. I believe this is the Socktopus, but not positive.
AND.........Birthday gift from my sweet sister arrived!!!! YIPPEE!!!!
The same sister that doesn't knit, doesn't know a knit from a purl.....yet she heard me talking about a Woolee Winder, contacted Cindy unbenownst to me to find out about them!!
I have a knitting project I am finishing up (hopefully in a couple of nights)....and then I am going to start spinning.
My wheel is a double drive wheel. Once I got everything "set" on it I have not had to adjust again, no matter if the bobbin is at the beginning, the end or plying!! My single drive Ashford wheel has scotch tension and I adjust regularly while spinning.....but it isn't a problem to adjust and I don't mind at all. It is all part of the process and I love them both!!
I have read a lot of opinions on the Woolee Winder and from what I have read, the scotch tension or single drive wheels require a bit of adjustment as the fiber pulls differently than with a regular flyer. What I have researched about the DD wheels has been very positive so I am VERY excited to get started!!!!
