I had bought some beautiful torquise cashmere yarn to make this beautiful shawl, but while looking through my stash today I found some lace weight silk by Fleece Artist. It was screaming at me "sonata" so after lunch today I got out my swift and ball winder to put this into a proper center pull ball and get started. Round and round the swift was going and then all of a sudden it was stuck I gave it a bit of a tug cause sometimes this happens with hand dyed yarn, they stick together and a tug will do the trick. NOT THIS TIME. It is now 5:36 ct and I have about 1/3 of the 600 m skein untangled. I quit after 5 hours and was ready to throw it away. DH jumped in and took over cause he loves doing things like that, he has the patience of a saint. It is as if the skein was not tied correctly and part of the loops were on the wrong side of the skein.
Has this ever happened to anyone else? Hopefully I'll cast on tomorrow and have a little something to show you.
