In testing my new winder out, I did run into a few issues. Even the lowest setting seemed too fast for my liking - at least for starting out. At the speed it went, the yarn tangled more easily and came out from the guide, which caused it to periodically stop and need to other be tapped or turned back off and on. Besides those minor setbacks, I'm happy so far and hope I can work out some of the kinks. My hope is that some of the issues I'm having are my not being used to the winder versus a problem with the winder itself.
If anyone else has this winder and has any tips/tricks or just general comments on it, let me know. Below is the before and after of my first skein, the left over yarn from my phone sock.
