A lesson in patience

If you work with yarn, then you know of what I speak.(

The dreaded tangle. 

I won this one! Four days. I almost gave up several times, but as long I can  make progress, I keep going. It helps strengthen my patience, and while I don't want to do this all the time, it does relax me and I find it very calming, and mindless busy work.

 Anything worth doing is worth doing right,  


I've only had one time where I had to throw the yarn away. I contacted the company, and they sent me what was lost plus some extra with apologies. It happens. 

These two look a little rough, not today because I'm tired of looking at it. But tomorrow I will shape up the balls. That is why I never pull from a skein and begin a project. Always round them up first. 

So now I can can work the granny ripple. Just not today :)


  1. Oh wow, I guess there was a "wobble" or a "wiggle" during the skein-winding at the factory! But you did indeed have great patience AND great dexterity to untangle a whole skein and get it ready to put into a ball!!! At least it was a pretty color! Happy Fourth to You!

  2. This blue color is striking. It's one of my favorite colors to wear. Sorry you are having a frustrating time with your projects lately. Yes, keep going, keep trying.

    Happy July days to you. : )



It has been a sincere joy to have you visit.
