My monstrous ball of yarn

14 May

So, I bought this monstrous ball of yarn at MD Sheep and Wool. Well, I should say it’s not so much a ball as it was a mass, or a wad, or a gigantic tangled mess. At least, that’s what it became after my husband and I attempted to wind it into a ball. Here’s what it looked like on Monday:

Then I’ve been working on it ever since, sometimes with help. Here are my friend, Stephanie, and my student, Alexis, helping me:

Now, of course, Stephanie is a big yarnie like I am, but Alexis is a novice. Just look at her concentration here:

She’s hooked, alright. The yarn addiction sinks in as the lanolin smoothes her skin. Ha ha ha ha ha!

Next up, we’ll teach her how to work with the yarn once it’s wound!

    I have a ball of yarn like that. It’s an angora blend, and it when I tried to wind it using a swift and ball winder, it just tangled. I’ve been working on it in bits and pieces for months. I am going to need more of it soon to finish a sweater I am making, and I’m not sure I have the stamina to do it!
