Just like a kid riding their first two-wheeler, I want to shout it to the world, "I did it!" I learned to spin on a wheel. It turns out that the reason the yarn wouldn't take up on the bobbin was because it was wrapped around the guide on the woolee winder. Doh! But you know, learning something like that the hard way means that next time I have a problem with take up, I'll double check that the yarn is flowing freely.
I was so happy, I got Jim to shoot a movie.
