I wasn’t sure I could get one whole skein onto a cone; I’d never tried that before. But it worked. Just took a while……….
Only 3 knots in the entire cone. Not bad.
From these cones I will make skeins for dyeing.
Why not make the skeins directly from the Treenway skeins? I could put the Treenway skein on my Goko* and wind from it onto my LeClerc skein winder.
I had tried that on an earlier project. But it was not totally successfully, as you can see if you read this post. Indeed, I got frustrated enough that I gave up and made cones instead which I then wound into skeins.
*Go here and scroll down the page to see Schacht’s Goko skein winder. To be clear, I want to say that the problem is NOT with the Goko. The Goko is a good piece of equipment. I just have to learn more about handling 60/2 silk!
