I was getting ready for a demonstration and wanted to thread a rigid heddle loom. Of course I tried to take a shortcut, and attempted to work directly from the skein. I actually discovered a really cool trick. You can use your desk chair to hold the skein and with the magic of a winding tool and a few deft twirls of the chair, end up with beautifully wound balls of yarn. After a few struggles, I proved that the system works. Try it! You’ll love it. Check out my progress via the photo series. I am always in awe of the beauty of yarn which is tamed into obedient submission. Happy Winding, and Happy Turkey Day!
