You would think by now I would have had to do this but I haven't yet so I thought I would ask. Do you use your wheel or do you have another way of doing it? Probably another tool I don't have. [crazy]

Okay, so I have to have another tool to do this any suggestions on one? I would like to spend as little as possible but still have it work.

I finally got one off of e-bay. They retail all the way up to $100 even for the little ones, but on e-bay I paid less than $40. Good luck. Sorry for the short reply last night, hard to type while finger is bleeding profusely.

I'm assuming you're putting plies onto storage bobbins? If it is already made into yarn, then you can just store it as skeins. You can put it up as a skein if you have a niddy noddy, although unless you also have a swift, it will be a pain to put the skein into a ball or onto a different bobbin. I don't think you could ply from a skein, either. You can wind it into a ball which is easy if you have a ball winder. If you want to ply from a ball, just put the balls into a big glass jar or a cardboard box or some other containment system and ply.

I don't use storage bobbins per se, but I wind my paper quills (for Swedish-style boat shuttles for weaving) with a cordless power drill. I insert a metal rod (in a pinch a wooden kebab skewer will do for a while) instead of a drill bit, wind the paper around it, and wind away.

Bye, Klara
