Anyway, how to allay my concerns? Buy more yarn online? Nice idea, I like that, especially as ordering just one ball seems so sad. I'd have to get something else too. No, Get Thee Behind Me, Satan. I've gone from no stash (other than a bag of nice tabletweaving yarn) to three bags of very expensive stuff behind the chair. I feel secure but poor.
Next time I hope to show the next FO. It's a race: it might be the cap, or it might, it just might be my loom, fully warped and ready to go. I hadn't realised what a pain it would be to warp and thread with such a wide castle. A pain in the back, literally. Three cheers for Pilates!
