There he goes…
Not quite comfortable, but getting there.
Bare bones is the way to go. A ball winder and a shoebox will do it.
Dump the spindle in the shoebox. No time to set up the table. Just attach the end of the singles and start winding with the ball winder. You'll have two ends to ply from in under five minutes (give or take, considering how much you spun)!
…and start all over again. Ha! Beat that scary cat!
Just one more understanding to go. 🙂
