Frustrating to be a noob14:01
I'm going to take a spinning class in 2 weeks time. As of this moment, I can't wait! I feel such noob. I pieced together the Fidelis with no problems.
But as to actually using it, I'm having so many problems. Treadling evenly and clockwise, for a start. Getting the actual wool on the actual bobbin? It just twists and twists but doesnt seem to roll up on the bobbin. Some site said i had to increase the tension, but i dont see how I can screw that flap on any tighter. As for getting some kind of flow in the distribution of wool into the machine , I havent even started. Lucky I got some cheap wool on a sale recently. Maybe that's the problem, the wool is too old and dry? How do I know?
