In an effort to reskein two cakes of yarn for washing, I have had the following happen.
- The swift came unlocked and the half wound skein fell off onto the table.
- The second cake flew off the ballwinder onto the floor.
To rid myself of the first problem, I came up with a nice little solution.
That’s probably the smartest thing I’ve done all week. The dumbest? Well, no one’s died or fallen off the balcony, so I’m going to go with winding that second cake onto the ball winder with no added tension cutting myself with some aluminum foil. (The second smartest thing was pulling up a chair to the swift. My back thanks me.)
Nothing genius was required to fix the second problem, I just rewound the cake on the winder with some tension. I think that makes 4 times I rewound these two cakes?
