I'm in Northern MA - my husband works in Keene NH, so we are over near Vermont. Welcome to New England! Is it much different from Michigan?

I'm only a new spinner so don't watch me, you'd prolly only learn bad habits  Cheesy

I am pleased to report that yes, using each hook in turn does result in a properly sexy bobbin. Hooray! Thanks again you guys!

Now really, I AM supposed to be doing stuff OTHER THAN spinning/surfing craftster today.

4  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / My bobbin is a mess on: January 23, 2007 04:59:33 AM
I am new to spinning on my Babe Production Double Treadle. I am getting the hang of it pretty good, & having a great time:


Reading the posts here has been a great help for problem solving - thank you all! One issue I am having has not been addressed, though: The threads stack up on my bobbin really untidily, in a big pile near the bobbin whorl but none filling up the rest of the bobbin. It's almost touching the flyer, so I scrunch it forward on the bobbin to make more room. Naturally it gets all tangly later when I go to unwind & ply. Howcome everyone else seems to have neat tidy bobbins that look like giant spools of thread & mine looks like crap? Please tell me what I am doing wrong!  Huh

thanks again!
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: wrinkled silk on: December 09, 2006 02:47:42 PM
I hate ironing. I don't even have an ironing board. When I need to get wrinkles out of something, I usually know well ahead of time. So I hang it on the back of the bathroom door. A week's worth of hot showers takes the wrinkles out of anything. I'm not sure how practical this is for a whole bunch of yardage & scarves, though!

I too would love to see how kool-aid looks on silk. I've used it on mohair & wool with excellent results.
