I finished the first sock of Xmas socks 2017. I got really excited about making some tracks this past weekend, despite all the busy I had going on, alas. I hit a snag.
I think bouncing around in my bag things happened to my ball of yarn. I spent TWO night at TWO hours each untangling.
I sent the image to my friend, Clare. See that's her when she rescued me from another rough day last week where my wallet was misplaced on my day off (fell out of my pocket in a co-worker's car). I had found it at this point so we went to lunch and did our best to feel like all is right in the world.
Anyways, Clare is one of those knitters that loves a good knot. It makes perfect sense. She goes full obsessive over puzzles. I like puzzles and I like yarn, but not like that. We had one knit club meeting where she spent half of it sorting out a ball for me.
Anyhow, I texted her and said, "Tell me the truth Dr. am I going to have to cut it out to resume knitting?" She recommended a little tapestry needle action, maybe dampening the bit if that fails before I cut my losses. (See what I did there?)
How do you feel about the tangle? Do you go beserk? Get Zen? Do you seek out other people's knotted yarn because it brings you such joy to work on it?
