This weasel won’t pop

About a month ago, while searching for something on e-Bay, I discovered a weasel (skein winder) that was in reasonably good shape. Having been searching for one for a while, I bid the opening bid thinking that I wouldn’t win. As ending time drew nigh, I began to experience buyer’s remorse because no one else was bidding. Did I miss something in the description? Was I going to get “burned”? The auction ended and I won and sent my payment. The seller was slow to ship and sent it the slowest mail rate so it was 2 more weeks before it arrived. During which time I worried and fretted that I’d bid too much or that maybe it wouldn’t work. It arrived last week and here it is…It does work but doesn’t pop but I know that 4 rotations is 10 yards and I don’t mind counting. It has a counter dial and I’m not sure how that works. The big problem is no room in my den/living room/studio for any more equipment. Guess I’ll have to move some furniture out.
I know I promised pictures of works in progress but rainy Monday prevented the photo session.
On the needles, red sparkly tee top in Nashua Grand Opera, the Whispering Pines shawl which should be finished by SAFF time, a Jelly Bean sweater (youth-sized) for charity which also will be finished next week and Nebula socks in Cherry Tree Hill which are taking a nap. Also napping until cooler weather comes is my Oregon Cardigan.
On the loom are some log cabin placemats in Christmas green and white.
On the wheel I just finished plying some alpaca. I think I’ll spin some Gale Arts BFL next.
Debit and I went to the Blessing of the Animals service Sunday. Debit is generally obnoxious when leashed and in the presence of other dogs. She was a good dog at this service. The PD, Lucy, was kissing her on the cheek and Debit didn’t feel the love for this and grumbled a little.Here we are.
Grace and peace to all and to my knitting friends, no frogs, no tinks, just knits.
