Oh, the horror! I was doing mindless, stress-free stockinette in the round for the ballerina tank, with aMaizing, which is a yarn made from corn. There was a tiny loose thread, which I just ignored, because in regular yarn the other plys will hold the yarn together just fine. I knit a few more rows. Then this happened:
Aaaarrrrrgggghhh!!! The yarn is not plied, but is actually sort of an I-cord, so that when one little thread gets loose, the yarn unravels. And a giant hole forms in the knitted fabric.
And just minutes before, I'd come to a random break in the yarn, which I HATE because weaving in ends is the pits.
And I looked at the rest of the ball, and this is coming up:
This is the inside end of a ball of yarn that's wrapped around a cardboard ring, so I know it hasn't been exposed to any sharp objects or been agitated in any way. It just auto-unravels!
So that makes three shite yarn problems in a very short stretch, and now I have to rip out a few rows to get back to before the hole. I am officially so over this yarn!
