The story should actually start last Thursday when myself and two friends got together for a meal out. One of my friends Beqi was wearing the first scarf I've ever knitted that actually looked like a scarf and not some freak accident in a yarn factory. (Which is what all my child hood attempts at trying to knit ended up like.)
Until that was I started to knit the scarf. All thread is not equal. I should know that from sewing I guess. I don't know whether I got a duffy ball, whether it was the change in brand or something else. But knitting with this was a nightmare. For those of you that have never knitted with this kind of yarn. It's actually a mesh that's wound into a ball in ribbons that you pull apart to access the mesh. Using the top thin end you knit through this and it creates ruffles with the pulled apart mesh sections. (Clear as mud right?!) Only not long after I'd started knitting the thread started to twist and turn. I kept unwinding it but as fast I did so it coiled back up making it almost impossible to open up a section of the mesh to knit through.
See that all twisted up - that's how it got really ugly.
The light is not great but you get an idea of Mum's scarf.
But at least I made something right?
