Pre-Knitting Issues

I have recently started knitting, and I like it. I like picking wool. I like the meditative process of knitting. I have always loved wearing wooly sweaters, hats and scarves so I am glad to make my own. But there is one part I'm struggling with. How do I get from this:
Hat yarn for Owen, Aaron and Andrew
To this:
Leftovers from fingerless gloves I knit my Sister in Law for Christmas
Without this in the middle:

Emma's hat yarn

I have been trying, unsuccessfully I might add, to untangle this 200yd long knot for a full day now, and everytime I almost get it better, it gets another big snag in it. Sigh.


  1. A swift and a ball winder make things much easier and the kids will have a ball watching it go.

  2. Hi Jill, I can show you how to wind it quite easily. Valerie:)
