1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Full bobbin, Now what? - novice - on: November 06, 2008 06:05:08 PM
Hello!

I've recently borrowed a friends older Ashford Traditional spinning wheel and I've got a question or two perhaps you kind people could help me out with! So I sat down last night and got the hang of threadling and started working with some wool, but I'm confused as to what to do next. I only have one bobbin (the owner of the wheel doesn't know where the other two bobins are that came with it when she bought it back in the 70's) which now has about 2-3 oz. of spun up wool on it and I'm not sure what to do? Should I transfer it onto one of my knitting needles? Or perhaps two needles? I would like to keep spinning but will run out of space on my bobbin soon.

Thanks for reading! I'm really looking forward to joining in the Fiber Fridays soon!

ETA: I also just kind of bought some more wool (3#s) from sheep shed studio so I think I might be addicted!
