Next time I decide to throw a hank
of yarn across my feet and start winding, remind me that's what I have kids and a dh for!! Two shifts of position and I had an hour's worth of untangling to do! Might be time to consider a swift!

Hi!

I read this hint awhile back (can't remember where) and it looked super neat.

Instead of using the back of a dining room chair, turn the chair over and wrap the hank of yarn around its upturned feet.

Maybe it'll work and keep you detangled! Hope so!
