Venting about the KNOTS in my yarn
I'm just really upset because I got a ton of freakin knots in my Caron's Simply soft eco. I got this really pretty color that I'm going to use to make a shrug. But there's like a billion knots in it! Ok, so I always unravel the skein and wrap it into a ball. I'll usually run into a FEW knots, like maybe 3, 4 max. But this thing has like ten thousand of them. And I mean, I don't mind the usual three or four. But I'm not even half through unraveling the skein and have run into all these issues. Has anyone else run into a problem like this, or is it just me. Sorry about the vent, just got really frustrated just now.

That's far too many. I would contact the Caron company and let them know about it. They may replace it for you.

Yeah, I'm seriously thinking about it. I mean, I really don't mind a few knots, but I have a ton of them, and they're very tight. Some of them I can get pulled out with a knitting needle. I've just never had a problem like this before. I unraveled another skein, which is the same kind that I have with the knots, and it only had one knot in it.

I agree with suzeeq. Plus, they won't know there's a problem unless we complain. Sorry about your frustration....

Yeah, I think that's what I'm going to end up doing. I didn't even think of that until susie mentioned it.

Sorry about your yarn. That must be really frustrating. I think I would contact the company also.

I just wanted to say how cute your kitties are! As you can tell by my avatar, I kinda like black and white cats!
