Wild Yarn and How to Tame It

 

DSC_0098I 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!
