Found a component today, so was able to craft an item rather than just send a segment to my partner. Yeah!

I had thought I was done crafting and moved onto wrapping, but I decided to make another small item that I was unsure about since I'm meeting my partner next weekend and will have some time.

Yay!  Cheesy  I have busted out some crafting this weekend.  I finally got all the parts made for one thing.  Now to assemble it.  Hoping to start wrapping Tuesday or Wednesday night.

My yarn ball is complete, boxed, and ready to send when I get off work today.  I had some "issues" while wrapping everything in the ball that involved my cat so I threw in an extra skein of yarn to make up for it.  Cats + yarn don't mix well LOL!

I had the SAME issues.  I was about ready to wrap him up in the ball and send him along (but he's tubby, so there wasn't nearly enough yarn...)

The process went something like this:
Wind... untangle the cat... wind... untangle the yarn... wind... untangle the cat... wind... add a fun item... wind... untangle the cat... put the item back in the ball and hold it with your knees so that you can wind with one hand and keep the cat at bay with the other... wind some more... untangle the cat... You get the picture.

I had about half the ball wound and the yarn got tangled.  I was in the process of untangling the mass and was so frustrated I sat it aside and walked away.  When I got back the dang cat had gotten into it and ripped the yarn Sad  I didn't want to start over so I tied it off and left the ends hanging so my partner knows where it happened then proceeded to finish winding it.  Like I said I sent another skein to make up for the broken one....Since I am not a yarnie I don't know if it is still usable as a full skein or what.....


I will be sending a PM this evening since I am sending after work today....

Awwww Lindy, that's not too bad.  Its still useable  Smiley  I'm going to guess though that you were working from a hank and that's how it got tangled so badly.  Those prettily wrapped yarns have to be wound into a ball of cake before its useable.  But I'm sure its great anyways.
