Almost a week ago, I took the assignment of untangling a very big mess. Last night, I finished it.
The secret was doing a little bit each day… Never more than 15-20 minutes at a time. I’m not sure exactly how long it took total. Hubby said that he was sure I wasn’t going to be able to do it, but then was amazed that I never seemed to be working too hard at it. (Really… My method of untangling is shaking the pile until it loosens up and then passing the growing ball through the holes in the pile. Little Grump says it’s like watching a magic trick!)
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get it all in one piece. The yarn was broken in the middle of the skein somewhere. Still, the friend who asked for untangling services should be able to make something wonderful from it.
