Love you (K)not
Recently however I seem to have been seeing an unusally large number of knots. Let's keep track here of the "problem children" of just this year:
China Doll Sweater - 1 knot in 2 balls
Quidditch Sweater - 3 knots in 6 balls
Bellatrix Socks - 1 knot in 1 ball
And I have started a bulky sweater with some more N.Y. Yarns Action only to find 1 knot and 1 horribly mangled area in the 2 skeins that I have used so far. Aaaaaaaah!
I have no idea why this is. It can't be a recent increase in the rate of knottiness in yarn production. I haven't bought yarn recently. This is all stash. And these are not yarns that particularly infamous for the number of knots. They aren't from the same yarn manufacturer or distributer. These aren't from wildly different from other yarns that I have used in the past. So what gives?
