Don't leave me alone with Hank

This is what happens when you try to turn 880 yards of hank into 3 skeins so you can Kool-Aid dye it.



I've only been untangling now for about 4 FRIGIN' HOURS.

HMPF.

nexttime you need to do that, come over and borrow my swift and niddy noddy.
good luck. At some point, i think you'll have to cut it and create a new skein/ball.

Oh, that does not look good! I feel for you, I don't own a swift or ball winder so dealing with huge yardage is tough for me.
I hope you can salvage most of it!
Take Care,

Ugh. That sucks. I just spent a morning untangling a skein of LACEWEIGHT, so trust me when I say I feel your pain.

You should get an umbrella swift and ball winder it saves so much pain. I procrastinated for ages over buying one then I realised I was wasted a lot of time untangling these problems. I got all my stuff of ebay real cheap

We did that too(can my hubby swear or what!!!), then I surfed ebay and got a winder and a swift, oh the joy, the rapture. I am in love with Windey and Swifty, never will our beloved Hank live with such chronic pain. Dr E-bay will fix it.
I need to get a life.
btw todays word of the day is ovimzwp!
