The Kiwi is working better for me. But I think I am realizing I do want bigger bobbins. I also think I don’t like fussing with the threading hook. Or having to take the tension off the bobbin in order to remove the bobbin! I am looking at a Louet Julia which seems to have what I want. Anyone have one of those?
I did run into a frustrating problem with the Kiwi. It’s brand new so I am breaking it in. This includes the bobbins. So when I began to ply last night, the fiber kept getting caught by the rims which were very rough in spots. They are smooth now after a bit of sanding. Plying should go better now. I got 40 yards and wonder if I could have put more on the bobbin? It looked like I could but I just got frustrated with the bobbin!
Have I said how much I like spinning?
