Um, Wensleydale IS dense, isn't it?

This is my second post on the GSW I'm knitting with Wensleydale. Yeah, they weren't a-kidding in the Halcyon catalog when they said it made a dense yarn....I already divided up the skeins for each triangle, and ran out on the first after the five skeins set aside, so I know I won't have enough for any of them. I've ordered another pound of the roving, and may need more; this will be the heaviest cloak in the world, but it'll be glorious. I'll just dye the remaining yarn purple and it'll go fine; meanwhile, I can knit each of the triangles as far as my current yarn will go, and spin and dye the roving when I get it. Thank God for my KnitPicks Options set!

Here are pics of Triangle 1 in stasis, and my progress on Triangle 2.
