That is just ridiculous! And the little flower that should have taken me less than 30 minutes to finish (maybe even 15 minutes) took forever because I kept having to untangle that mess of yarn barf. GRRRR! It's just infuriating. Or really annoying. Or a minor inconvenience in this crazy world we live in. But I really really really don't like it!
Once upon a time, long long ago, I reached into a lovely skein of brand new yarn and grabbed the end and pulled it out very neatly. One time that's happened. And I knew it would never happen again. Ahh, memories.
So tell me, is there a secret to this that I just don't know?? Seriously, someone tell me there is a way to do this without the mess!!
An interesting side note (because the previous side note wasn't side note enough).....Check out this price tag......
This yarn was on clearance at Wal-Mart in 1999! Glad it's finally found a small use. Since the "thing" is made from the same brand and type of yarn, but is a newer model it's interesting to compare the two. The old stuff was stiffer and coarser. Not nearly as soft. I think it may be wrapped a little more tightly too. It seems nubbier.
Pictures of said "thing" to come!
