Slightly over a year ago, I changed from my old job to a new one at the same company. You can read about it here, if you are interested. Well, as it turned out, that was not the end of me doing that job. The lady who took it over quit with very scant notice, and now I am doing that plus my current actual job. Which I why I have been a little quiet here recently.
There is some talk of finding a replacement for her, but for the moment, it is all on me. I am a little frazzled.
Anyway. Knitting! I have gotten some done on Forest Weave over the last few days. Slow but sure!
I like the look and feel of the fabric – which is very open, and I like knitting with linen. However, I have been running into a problem with the cakes.
This linen yarn just sproings off the cakes in every direction and immediately tangles into a big snarl. About halfway through a cake I usually just stop and wind it in a ball in hopes of preserving my sanity a little bit. Which means that probably it shouldn’t be wound that way in the first place. I think I’m just going to take a cake or two along with me and wind them into balls in idle moments so they are ready to go. Because the cakes are just killing me.
Do you have any yarn types you find particularly difficult? How do you deal with them, if so?
