I somehow managed to get several rolls of yarn intertwined into my laundry pile, and I am now completely unable to find the rolls of yarn or separate my laundry, if that makes you feel any better.  Every time I need a pair of pants I have to go in with scissors.

Woah you beat me!!!! Cheesy

I am always untangling yarn for my wife.  I don't mind, I enjoy puzzles of all sorts.
Oh if only my boy would do that for me! That's a great idea about felting it though, I've got some leftover roving so I might just do that!

Well today I stumbled upon a lovely wool shop here in Wonderful Wonderful Copenhagen and got lots of nice Filati stuff in the sale, namely 3 huge balls of laceweight for 70 kr (6.40) each. Great! Until of course I try and find an end to start winding it into balls, and after about 10 seconds of not being able to find it, I take the ball band off. One of life's lessons that I seem incabable of learning is to NEVER TAKE THE BALL BAND OFF REALY FINE WOOL BEFORE YOU FIND THE END. I have done this countless times before and made a tangled mess of things, only this time it errupted into a huge mound of wooly vermicelli noodles!!! The consequence of this is having wound 4 miniscule balls (about 3cm in diamenter) in about as many hours. Only 1200 odd meters to go!!! Roll Eyes

I only hope that my recurring stupidity makes someone else feel better............. Smiley

When you say a hot iron, do you mean a normal household iron on a hot setting? I've tried this before, taking bits of paper painted with disperse dyes done in uni home with me, and even with leaving an iron on it as long as i think is safe, the results are muted or barely visible. Clothing irons just dont get hot enough. I have wondered about using a panini maker (the big flat ones for toasting sanwiches), but again I dont know how hot they get. I know the proper heat presses used for disperse dyes are usually set at 180 C for 60 secs. Also slightly thinner paper might help, thin brown or white parcel wrapping paper usually works the best, hope this helps you!
