Winding a bobbin

Yesterday I had a fiber-fail moment. I was trying to wind 2 threads together onto a bobbin quill, and you guessed it. I ended up with a mess.

I started weaving, merrily throwing the shuttle, watching the fabric form, and not paying attention the shuttle that came to a halt. The fiber was coming off the end of the quill and wrapping itself all over in a mess.

I took a deep breath and slowly untangled everything winding a butterfly on my left hand. I stood there and said now what?
