I didn’t do any weaving over the weekend, but I did get out the merino/silk blend from my silk goody pack. Spinning was a breeze. Then came plying. Look what happened:
Talk about discouraging! I usually ply from a center pull ball without any difficulty, but this one got away from me. Somehow the innards of the ball pulled out and commenced to twist back on themselves. The more I tired to fix it, the worse it got.
What to do.
Chunking the whole thing is not an option. Merino/silk is not a blend I often get my hands on.
I could pop the whole mess into the washing machine and make a felted pin cushion.
I could actually try to unravel and unknot the mess.
I could try and auction it off on eBay as Rubik’s yarn ball.
I could cut and tie as I ply in hopes that I could salvage enough to knit with.
I’ll have to let you know.
