I’ve been winding this giant yarn ball of hand-dyed cotton for at least four days (not continuously, of course) and I’m so very happy to report that I’m finally done. The tangle is out and the yarn is ready to be stitched into something fantastic. (I’m thinking another crochet apron might be in order.)
I forgot to snap a before picture, but my word, was this a tangle. Originally, the yarn was tied into a neat skein so I could hand-dye it over at Rita’s house. I hung it up to dry at my house and somehow in the midst of our crazy busy family life, the skein was disturbed and tangled. If I wanted to assign blame, I’d say the CraftSanity V.P. of Fun and her pint-sized associate V.P. were the last to handle this yarn before the massive tangling took place. But that’s not important. What’s important is that I’m finally done untangling and I have a beautiful ball of yarn to stitch with.
Today I hope you’ll join me in celebrating this giant yarn ball and tell me about your last tangle. How did you get it out? What do you do with your tangled yarn? Pitch it, stuff it in a box in the back of the closet, or give it to that person in your life who loves to untangle things. My mom is really good at getting out tangles. About a year ago, we spent an evening untangling yarn my little V.P.s had made into a yarn salad. Good times.
