Okay, yarn skein horror story. I bought 4 skeins of cheapo wal-mart brand yarn. I spent hours trying to get them to unravel the knots that came out of them. I couldn't even get to the point of making a yarn ball! So rather than have a stroke after being denied by the first two, they all went in the trash.

So this is my thing--I never again will start to knit something without turning the purchased skein into a ball first, so that I don't run into bad knots.
