I thought it would be fun to share a little post on what I learned recently about such lovely yarn. I am new to crocheting and have been told that when you buy yarn in hanks, you should always roll the yarn into a ball before starting your project. Well, I was so eager to start my project with this new yarn, that I didn't think it would be that big of a deal if I didn't roll it into a ball.
And this is what happened to the oh, so lovely yarn.
I know what your thinking, I should have listened to the advice, but I was too impatient. :) I tried to get all the knots out and it just got worse. I had purchased quite a few of these hanks, and knew that my husband would not volunteer his arms for every hank, in attempt to roll it myself.
So, I purchased these lovelies. A yarn swift and winder.
I have been having a lot of fun winding all of my yarn hanks into beautiful balls that end up like this.
