HELP!!! Need to know a simple ? about the yarn I bought.

I bought this yarn because I wanted to knit a fancy scarf. I've seen someone posted something like this on here...what I'm not sure how do u start knitting with this yarn? Do you have to untie and start with the loose end? Help! Here's a photo of this type of yarn...well, it's mixed yarn! Does anyone know what I'm talking about? :??

Find a place where the yarn is wrapped around the skein and probably tied. Either cut it or untie it there and roll it into a ball. If you try to knit as it is, you'll have a beautiful knot. Put the yarn around something or have someone hold it so you can roll it without pulling the entire thing up.

Thanks Ingrid! I found the end of it when I untied it. But I kind of got it into a little mess. Boo. I'm working on it to get it untangled...slowly but surely! Thanks tho! I hate beautiful knots! Waaah! :crying: (Here's a picture of it...hehe.)

SOMETHING MUST be wrong with me
I do those Tangles and do not have as much a horrible time
I actually like it
sometimes it is frustrating, but it IS fun and gratifying too

something MUST be wrong with me

ecb, I love undoing knots, but not when it's my yarn. I really love getting tangley knot messes out of little tiny gold chains. :drooling:
