Yarn Baby

Yarn Baby

What a proud parent my ball of yarn must be after giving forth such a beautifully tangled splop of yarn. I just started this new ball and although it seemed everything was working on the inside like it was supposed to, the next thing I knew this huge massive tangle was beginning to crown.

What the heck? How come some of them never have problems and others are a huge mess? The rest of this ball is already a yarn carcas since so much came out in the tangle. I've untangled and rewound this little tyke, but it's still attached to the main ball, like a toddler on a leash.

Yarn baby - not nearly as funny as "yarn barf" but still applicable. ;)

That yarn looks pretty, by the way, whatcha makin' there?

Yeah - I was going to call it yarn barf, but then this one really looked like a baby to me :-) Maybe each one has its own personality that we need to discover.

This is the filler yarn that I am using for my hairy poncho. Its Lion Brand Wool Ease. It has turned out to be a little squeaky when I knit with it by itself.
