Susan Bates yarn bobbins
Can someone please tell me the correct way to use the Susan Bates yarn bobbins? There were no instructions given with them and I don't know if I'm winding them correctly.

Thanks!!

Just wrap the yarn around them so that the open slit is on top. Keep wrapping up and down. When you knit with it you untwirl it to free up yarn.

Better yet. . .

Thanks so much Ingrid! I was wrapping it the wrong way. I hope this will make things easier for me. I looked at some of your work and I am amazed!! I've only been knitting for about a year and I had no idea handmade knits could look so good. I'm looking forward to learning new techniques and maybe reaching your level of expertise!

Thank you!
