My 72 needle cylinder was feeling sluggish – a little stiffer on the knit that what it should be. I hadn’t cleaned it for several months, so for a nice way to spend a -18 degree Saturday I took it out of the Verdun 47, and gave both a good clean up.
No wonder the knit was getting stiff – there was barely enough room left in the slots for the needles to complete their stitches. (The cylinder is upside down in the first pic.)
That’s a lot of wool-cucky.
For some odd reason I haven ‘t tossed it out yet. I keep thinking there must be a good use for this cylinder-crud felt…
