I’ve been trying for HOURS to sort this mess out. HOURS.
That is what happens when a certain kitty named Sydney decides she’s going to help me wind a hank of yarn into a ball.
This was already a sticky situation anyway, because I don’t have a swift or ball winder. I know from experience that for me, doing this by hand usually means a small degree of tangling that has to be dealt with along the way. Syd saw the yarn dangling and moving around though and had to come help. And before I knew it… well. My poor beautiful 100% merino is quite a mess to look at.
I refuse to give up on it. It’s $14 worth of bliss in such a gorgeous soft peachy-tinged cream color. Though trying to get this yarn disaster straightened out is giving me an awful headache and making me want to sit down and sob. I had intended to start a project with this yarn this afternoon. Oh well. The best laid plans…
My dentist appointment this afternoon went better than anticipated. I didn’t need a root canal; could not be more grateful for that if I tried! My dentist said he thinks that with the stress I have been under recently I may have been grinding my teeth and that caused the tooth to break. It’s all fixed now and I feel so much better now that I can stop stressing about that. I have another appointment in a couple weeks for another tooth that’s being bratty. I didn’t have that one dealt with today too purely due to not knowing the cost of fixing the broken tooth.
I am off to try to sort out my merino once more. I doubt I’ll get it all figured out tonight. But I’m going to try!
