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.

ugh....i had the same problem with some Caron yarn i purchased for an inexpensive project i was doing. Not only was it crapolla to work with, and split on every opportunity, and not only did it feel unpleasant to work with, but it was in big ol' knots in the middle...blah! i have become a horrible yarn snob it seems. *sigh*
