Tilting the Kate

Got around to doing my "tilt the Kate" experiment.  Loaded up the bobbins, clamped the lazy Kate to the table on a forty-five degree angle, and plied my yarn.  No improvement in performance that I could tell.  Running the strands through the back of a chair helped to get proper tension.

You can get lazy Kates that hold the bobbins at a forty-five degree angle with no propping or clamping necessary.  A friend got a model called Kate 45 from cjkoho on Etsy and loves it.
