a tangle

I’m utterly enjoying the feel of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, but my oh my, it is the worst-wound ball of yarn I ever have seen! The yarn is wound super-loose and the whole ball just utterly falls apart after you start knitting from it. And don’t even think about using it as a centre-pull ball… I actually got so irritated that I completely dropped one ball and started with a fresh one, but soon enough, I was again faced with something like this…

You may notice, however, that it’s not slowing me down too much… ;)

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.

  1. Well done you for managing to knit with this anyway! The only recommendation I can come up with is to try and wind this onto a roll of newspaper and knit from there. But that does seem rather a lot of work for something that shouldn’t be an issue in the first place.
    At least you’re not getting lots of knots like my DB Prima yarn.

  2. Evo i mene sa savetom :)
    Probaj da nadjes posudu koja je iste sirine kao i klupko, kako se ne bi pomeralo. Ne mogu da vidim bas na fotografiji, uzela si nit iz unutrasnosti klupka ?
