Thanks everyone!!! Now I know that I'm not the only one this happens to. (unfortunately) Even with the acrylic yarns I use, I find knots in unexpected places.

knitting happily.........

I was knitting with a friend once, and she kept complaining about how many knots there were in her yarn. So, I asked her to let me see the next knot.

As it turned out, it was just her yarn getting tangled with itself, making a twisted spot occasionally. (It was a single ply yarn, which tends to do that.) So, I showed her how to let the project dangle and unwind.

She stopped complaining after that, when she realized that it wasn't actual knots in the yarn.

I thought that was so funny!
