Frustrated with knotted yarn
Beginner knitter here. I am using some worsted yarn to knit a headband. I was knitting alone quite well until I came upon some random knots in my ball of yarn (like pieces of yarn tied together). My husband and I have been trying to unknot it for almost 45 minutes and I am about ready to explode!
Does anyone have any quick tips to unknot the yarn so I don't have to begin again with my project?
Are there any steps I should take PRIOR to beginning my knitting so I can avoid this?
Are there any yarn brands that I should stay away from in order to not have to deal with this problem?
Thanks in advance for the help!
