I think I may have screwed the Aeolian yarn up beyond belief. I washed it today, and I may have cried a couple of tears when it was time to hang it to dry. Look at this mess. I didn’t abuse it at all. Didn’t wring it, didn’t shock it, didn’t whack it. And look.
It gets worse. Seriously, click on it to go to the Flickr page. Look at the spot where the note is. See the ply and now it’s all coming apart? What do I DO with that? Can I unply it? Should I just run it through the wheel again to put more twist in it? Will it even stay?
I think the second batt will be done sans beaded thread, unless someone has a better way to ply this stuff. I don’t even know if I could knit with it all loose like that. I might lose my mind.
Pardon me. I’m going to go sit in the fetal position for a while and cry bitter, bitter tears.
