A friend sent me some lovely brown hand-spun that's just perfect for a ZigZag Lace Scarf. I guess she thought it would be funny to tie the beginning of the skein to the end...or maybe that's something clever that all good spinners do... so that when I went to wind it up, I saw the little knot and just thought it was part of the skein, not the beginning and end.
For days I searched in that skein for the free strand to wind it up. Poking, pulling, cursing and fretting! Not going to cut it, no way. It must be here somewhere! Eventually, I untied the knot and it wound up perfectly, without a single interruption. Drat!
Reminded me of when my daughter and my nieces secretly replaced all the rolls in the house with these...
The dreaded prank rolls...they have no beginning...you just keep trying to get the roll started but it's impossible. That was just SO funny.
