Makes me sad.
I know... I get so emotional over it because it's such a waste of beautiful yarn... but I have to hold it in because my mom will just yell at me for being sad or angry that the yarn is being wasted... funny, huh?
To Jan: I know it's a hank.. just... my brain left the building the other day lol
I do want to get that swift, though... it would be MUCH better than the top of a chair, for sure.
