Ever had a yarn on a swift wanting to put it into a neat and tidy cake but it just won't behave itself? This is the result of one such skein which refused to untangle itself no matter how hard I tried! It took a bit of patience and perseverance to unravel the web of tangled yarn and to wind it into baby yarn cakes but it sure did turn out cute didn't it?
I swear my job as a dyer is fraught with wrangling yarn into submission and the above photo expresses that very well - that's 13 baby yarn cakes! However, by its very nature, yarn just wants to tangle or catch on something at a moment's notice especially when you're not paying attention. Click the photo to see it in its enlarged glory!
That was the highlight of my day today and yesterday was spent having turkey with family in Toronto where my 7 year old nephew was not unlike yarn - hard to keep wrangled into submission but oh so cute nonetheless.
Hope you had a great weekend!
P.S.: If you can find a use for the baby yarn cakes, you're more than welcome to! The cakes are ready to knit from and marked down by 50% from the original skein price.
