It started out so well. I bought some lovely yarn from Purl SoHo while I was in New York last year and decided to use them in my first attempt at a crochet blanket. The nice lady in the shop asked if I wanted the yarn spun into balls but I thought they would squish into my suitcase better as hanks. Big. Mistake.
What was once beautiful yarn now looks like this:
It looks like a group of cats had a fight in it. Or a family of possums nested in it.
My crochet blanket has now been put on hold as I had to cut the blue yarn off mid row due to the Huge Tangled Knot of Doom it had become. I have to either find a way to untangle the yarns or find replacements that match the colours as closely as possible.
It would be such a shame not to be able to use all of the yarn I bought, not to mention such a waste of great material! Does anyone have any suggestions for untangling yarn, or how to wind yarn into a ball when you've bought it as a hank? My sad, tangly yarn would greatly appreciate any ideas you may have!
