CTH baby sachet ribbon yarn
this yarn is so pretty... but damn it i am about to chuck it!


i carefully untied both ends of the yarn and removed the tie on the 'hank'.
it was veeeeeeeeeery loose in the hank! i added a cardboard sleeve to the ball winder to help keep it together. it started out ok. now it is a big tangled mess! i went slow and careful.now i have one small ball with a big tangle attached followed by a long tail

i think i need a drink


grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I dunno what to tell you.. so it has a big knot in it and won't wind for you? could you wind them into small balls? instead of fighting with the ribbon yarn? or ask someone to hold it in their arms (while you wind it?

DON'T CHUNK IT YET~~ If all else fails put it aside in a baggie, close it up, and leave it for tomorrow~!sometimes inspiration (or a break) gives you a different solution~!

Sorry you are so frutstrated~! When I first started knitting I tried Lion Chenille Thick n quick.. I finally had to throw in the towel~!
