tangle


tangle, originally uploaded by the pig wot flies.

I've got myself into a lovely tangle winding this skein of laceweight silk. It's pretty big, about 2000m and it's taking a long time to wind by hand. I don't have a swift, so I started with the skein round my knees and then moved it onto a chair. I'm winding onto a kitchen roll tube and my first attempt (you can just see it down in the right hand corner) was a bit loose, so now I'm winding from the other end. It's going to take a while, but it's getting there.

Eek! But it's such a pretty pretty colour - gorgeous! (Which has to help some as you battle with the urge to just cut the wretched thing?...)

Augh! I have never had laceweight of that sort of a length get into such a tangle for me, though I have had my fair share of messes!
