I actually would LOVE to sit and untangle that! I dig those kind of mindless chores. However, it would end up sitting in a bag in my closet for who knows how long as I don't have the time. *sigh* What a pity.

Ditto. I'd be into it, but no time.

Go Femmy and Midnight!

Remember you are allowed to cut it to untangle! It sounds like the kind of wool that would take a felted join without barely a mark, so you could have joins in a ball of yarn.

Happy bidding!

Amy (or anyone):
How exactly do you make a felted join? I am knitting this celtic knot sweater, which is really great, except several times during the intricate cabling I have made an extra large loop. If I pull it through to the back then the front looks fine, but there are these darn smallish loops of yarn on the back. Perhaps I could felt them somehow so that they don't work their way to the front? They are too small to cut and tie I think.

Thanks for the link Kelly. I don't think it'll work for me though on an already knitted sweater... oh well. I'll figure something out!
