On a lighter note, I found some quirky yarn called Jester which has pompoms incorporated within the yarn. Yay! I thought, an easy way to make a pretty child's scarf. I bought just one skein to try and boy am I glad it was was a solitary skein :/ I found it almost impossible to unravel. Starting off by unravelling enough yarn to knit up to the first pompom was difficult and I couldn't work out how to roll it into a ball because all the pompoms meant it got tangled at every turn. Blast! I knitted up to one pompom and found that the weight of it pulled the stitches out of shape around it....
It looked lovely in the skein....
Then I really came unstuck, I mean, really .... aarrgghh
After half an hour of twisting and turning I exploded, metaphorically speaking, cut off the pompoms leaving a long tail of yarn attached and painstakingly re-rolled the bits of yarn into small balls which I can use for other projects. Never again....NEVER!
