One Big Stinkin' Mess

So, I decided today that I would try and wash some yarn I have.  Since my stash mostly comes from the thrift store and it tends to be really itchy, I thought that would be a good idea.  Little did I know that this would happen- yikes!

At first I could only laugh- what else can you do?!


This is going to take me FOR-E-VER to untangle!  And to make things worse, I happened to do this right when we are in the process of buying a house- aaaah! I am so tempted to just chuck this stinkin' mess in the trash and forget it.

A word to the wise-  only wash one ball of yarn at a time!

  1. I've always thought it interesting, that our fingers can take a mess like that and (with a huge dose of patience)'feel' a way through the knots and tangles and actually get it pulled apart. Meditative actually and always so satisfying. Yarn lover, here :)

  2. Funny you should mention this. I was just wondering how to wash yard I buy at yard sales before I use it. Any good ideas?
