no problem Allan.  Yes, I used local twine I got from a farm general store.
Though it is/was cheaper to get a larger spool, working alone, I found it
much faster to weave using smaller spools.  A case of 500 rolls lasted me
forever (I prefer bush beans so only had to trellis cukes).  Now I can't
remember how many feet were on the spools.  lemme go find some records &
I'll get back to you!
