when older, wiser spinners who are vastly more experienced say things like, “It really helps to let the bobbin sit for a few days before plying, so that the twist settles and it isn’t quite as tangly.” it helps to listen to them. Really. Also, the scotch tension on your lazy kate is there for a reason. Why didn’t you use it?
The tangled mess that you fought with for two freaking hours tonight? The bad words? The snapped singles? The knots? The tears? The throwing of the orifice hook across the room (which scared the cats and has resulted in a lost orifice hook), yeah, that totally could have been avoided.
I guess you can look upon it as a valuable learning experience. It isn’t so bad. You can make socks with it. The mistakes will just remind you not to be a total dumbass next time, right?
Next time, slow down, be patient, wait a few days, and for gods sake, remember to tension the lazy kate. Please. And bribe the kittens with tuna shots or something.
Oh, and to the person who came to my site after searching, “Honey grannies”? Really? I’m freaking amused that you got my page on granny squares instead. That’s funny. I don’t think that’s what you were expecting. Also, ew.
