Yarn Winding Woes – What else is new?

Since I finished my mermaid tail blanket, it’s only right to start another project, right? I’ve hard two skeins of Spud and Chloe Stripey fine in my stash from who knows where and when, because I never stashed them on Ravelry.

Anyway, I got out my trusty cake winder and swift last night and plopped the first skein on. I instantly knew I was going to have problems.

This little loop on my swift isn't supposed to be sticking out like this

That loopy thing is NOT supposed to be there.

Anyway, I wound on fearlessly… and ended up REALLY tangled.

Here you can see a mad yarn vomit on my swift.

Dan was watching TV, and laughing at me every time he looked over. What a fun night. 😐

But, I muddled through and now I have two little cakes of yarn to make some socks with!

Two cakes ready to go!

Not sure if I’ll like them, because the FO’s of this colorway on Ravelry are not my cup of tea. The word “hideous pooling” was used. You can see what I’m talking about yourself here. But as long as Dan likes them, that’s the goal, right? 🙂
