So, you’ve got your pretty yarn all died and dry. It’s in a big skein, but the threat of tangles still looms. What’s a girl to do?
Here’s what to do to get your yarn into a pretty little twist. It’s not terribly practical, but it’ll keep your yarn tangle-free until you get a chance to ball it up. (Also, skeined yarn looks pretty, so if you’re giving your yarn away as a gift, this might be the way to go.)
Step 1: Loop the yarn around your hands.Step 2: Twist, twist, twist. Twist until you can’t any more.
Step 3: Fold the yarn in half. I either hold the middle of the yarn in my mouth or under my chin. Don’t gag. Ew.
Step 4: Tuck one end of the skein through loop at the other end.
Step 5: Futz with the skein to even out the twists.
So that’s how they do that!
I always wondered how they do that. PS….like your hair cut!
So pretty! And I’m so glad that “futz” is finally an approved technical term. =0)
Of course it is!
Great idea. I tangled mine completely and had to slowly and painfully untangle it. http://thenaturalmetropolitan.com/2013/09/21/how-not-to-unravel-a-skein-of-wool/
