**Shrieksssss** I think I may have to frog my entire sock!!
 
:!!!: :grrr: So I started my secret sock pal project this weekend, I was using Kogiu PPM yarn and I had the guy at the store wide it into a center pull ball.....

Got home, started to knit and it turns out he wound the ball wrong... EVERYTHING WAS TANGLED, it took me 2 hrs to cut portions off untangle, cut untangle and so forth....

I finally got to finish the heel flap and I noticed I made a huge mistake.

My final question is
"Should I frog the whole project since it's already peiced togeter with mini balls of yarn due to LYS clerk :!!!:

Is it possible to untangle it from the other end so you can preserve the sock?

I tried now there are gaps etc, and I feel bad if my pal feels the little knots from linking one mini ball of yarn to another. :pout:

was it the first sock? i'd probably start over with new yarn :shrug:
and :!!!: at the clerk
:verysad:
i don't think a sock with knots all over would be too comfy....good luck! :hug:

I would take the yarn, and the sock-in-progress back to the LYS, for a refund. If they're a good yarn store, they should exchange it.

Ditto. Since they screwed up the yarn, they should exchange it for you. If they want to keep your business, they will.

Good luck!!

And you should give them the name of the person that wound the yarn!

They said they won't refund anything because it was wound into a center pull ball, since I pretty much untangled it into 15 mini balls of yarn, and knitted up 1/2 of it, I guess they can't tell if it was their mistake or not.

Good thing I have an xtra ball of yarn :grrr:

Well, they would have lost me as a customer, then.
