Yarn Along


I have made good progress on my Guernsey Wrap this week.
I am not a jumbo jet knitter, I actually knit more like a kite but I am ok with that.

I had a play date with my two great nieces on Monday 
and I brought my knitting with me in case they took a nap.

Now my yarn looks like this.
Lorelei got into it and I'm not sure this can be saved.
I cut it from my work, started a new ball and handed this over to the hubs to untangle.
He worked on it for hours last night. 
He huffed and puffed a bit, it's spread out on the living room floor
and apparently he has it down to the "nucleus".
Moral of the story, 
don't leave your knitting unattended, where a 2 year old can reach it!
You all probably know that!!

  4. Hello, your wrap is looking pretty. The important part of the story is you had a fun time with your great-nieces. Sorry about the yarn, it does look like a tangled mess. Have a happy day!

  6. I'm so sorry about your tangled yarn. I recently spent two days trying to untangle a skein after attempting to find the beginning of the yarn in the center of the ball. I pulled out a huge, tangled glob. Ugh. Btw, your Guernsey wrap is Gorgeous! I've just added the pattern to my Ravelry que.

  8. Or cats or a dog. I have spent hours untangling yarn! Your wrap is wonderful. I think it looks perfect for cool weather.
    I hope Chuck wins! I bet he will. Ron likes to untangle yarn too. Have a lovely day Debbie!

  13. Speaking of making a mess of yarn, and ribbons and other rope like things, my kitty cat can top any two year old! She is so sneaky!

  19. Seeing things like this always makes me think of my grandma, one of my favorite people of all time. She used to do all kinds of crafty things, knitting being a main activity. She seemed to know just about everything there was to know.

  20. Oh my goodness, lesson learned huh! I left mine out with the cat when she was younger, that isn't a great idea either ;)
    I can just hear your hubby huffin and puffin :)

  22. I've read that those Maram grasses they plant to control erosion just keep growing upwards as the sand accumulates around them. By the time you get a dune 15 feet deeo, it's filled with the inter-laced roots of the grass. No wonder it helps control erosion.

  23. Safer with a cat than a two year old

  24. Men are great at untangling wool. I just don't have enough patience! Your wrap is looking wonderful.
    I did read some reviews of the pattern and some seemed to hint it could be confusing. Is it easy enough to follow?
    Have a brilliant weekend :)

    1. I don't find the pattern to be confusing at all. If you can read a pattern, knit and purl, you will be fine!!
