Playing with equipment
Saturday, January 23, 2021
My friend who has a shop: yarn, fiber, small maker, milk, meat, bread, baked goods. More of a mercantile than a yarn shop, really. But she has all the great fiber equipment. While I was there this week for an e-conference I took my plied yarn (the yarn to be woven for a skirt) on bobbins to wind into skeins or her electric winder. It would have taken me hours and I would have needed to cut the yarn in smaller segments to do it at home.
Spark will not let me load a video that I made winding from the bobbin to the skein winder. It's electric and can do huge skeins. I had three very large bobbins full and one smaller one.
I have a bit over 2000 yards in three huge skeins (some over 600 yards) and one smaller one. Now I need to sample and find the best set up for weaving it!
