I'm still having a tension problem. Maybe I'm too relaxed because my tension is now very loose no matter how hard I try to tighten it up.
There are many beautiful ceramic yarn bowls on Etsy but only one will do:
There was only one available according to the site. What if someone else ordered it ahead of me and I don't get it? No idea how Etsy works but I'll be watching for a confirmation.
Despite my better instincts I appear to be building up a small stash of cotton yarn. The projects I'm interested in are all small so two of each color seems reasonable.
