Another bright idea from Meg: a day to celebrate the humble bobbin. My bobbins are indeed of a humble sort. Nothing elegant here, just a lot of bits of plastic kept higgledy-piggledy in a plastic box.
The box itself resides in the storage thingummy next to the Delta.
I never take unused yarn off a bobbin unless I urgently need an empty bobbin — I prefer to have a variety of bits and bobs of yarn which I can experiment with, either on a new warp or on whatever is left of an old warp. If I do need to wind off unused yarn then I make it into a butterfly and add it to this collection.
This basket was extremely popular last year when it accompanied me to the workshop I led at my Guild. Bits of yarn that had been sitting in there for years were seized upon as just-the-very-thing-needed. So, on the whole, I would say that the system works pretty well.
