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!

I have had problems with Caron before with knots... I hate them, but do understand that one or two will happen from time to time. I usually cut them and then re-join my yarn as though I was starting a new skein. It is a pain, but not so bad when you are only dealing with a knot or two.

The previous posts said it - contact the company. Good luck, I'm sorry about your yarn. It is frustrating.

LOL. It was funny last night, my little grey cat Wilbur LOVES yarn. She just loves to "help" me. She'll carry the yarn away whenever I'm knitting, then break it. She just got spayed on thursday. She was laying on the floor and I was on my bed trying to get the knots out. She looked so tempted to jump up and help, but she didn't. I think she was either still too sore to mess with it, or she knew I was frustrated and kept away. But anyway, I just thought it was too cute, so I just had to share!
