So today I cleaned the lint out of my bobbin case, and when I put it back, I wasn't paying attention and I put it in wrong, so that when I started sewing, it broke a nice chunk of plastic off the case. I was able to epoxy it together as I ordered a new one off ebay; thank goodness it was a clean break!
But now I'm noticing something funky with my stitches. I've always had this problem ever so slightly with this mix of material, but I'm really noticing it now. I've messed with my tension to no end with no luck. I wouldn't call it crooked, though, it's as if it's some weird zig-zag (and I've tried resetting my straight stitch, too. )

And by the way, does anyone know why I'm getting this thread vomit where I'm stopping and starting? My only thought is it has something to do with the way I'm reversing the direction to lock in the thread.
