Problem solved. It turns out that the polonaise is supper easy to treadle, no down right effortless, once the half knitted stocking cap is dug out from under the treadle. I swear the UFOs are escaping their tidy knitting bags to hide and have litters when I'm sleeping. Once I removed the stocking cap I easily spun 2 oz while eating bread from Great Harvest and most of a box of chocolates. Finally I am on track.
