Is there such a word as “coning?” Spell checker seems to think it’s a word……. Anyway, here is the brown skein being coned. Also visible are some of my other tools.
On the bottom shelf, my electric cone winder and my hand cone winder.
On the middle shelf, my ball winder (in a clear pastic bag) and gloves that I sometimes wear when winding yarn to protect my fingers.
On the top shelf, my tension box, now facing a different direction so that the yarn coming from the skein winder does not pop off the pegs.
The winding is not going without some difficulties. This next photo shows more clearly just what the difficulties are.
Nevertheless, the difficulties here are not the horrendous ones I have experienced in the past. That means I am not tearing out my hair over it. Just being persistent.
And I do now know it is definitely the dyeing process that is the cause of the problems.
