I have already posted about my Dyeing Pre-Knit Blanks for Long Gradients of Color video, but there is still more that happened with this project... I had to unwind the blank!
When I was almost done winding the yarn, I suddenly let out a huge EEEK! I must not have secured the pipes of the niddy noddy well (see how to make your own niddy noddy out of pvc pipe) and POOF suddenly I had this mess. Thankfully this is bulky weight yarn and so it wasn't a lot of effort to rewind the yarn, but I was worried about getting a horrific tangle. Phew!
I probably should have wound this gradient yarn directly into a center pull ball. Now I will have to have this crimped yarn on the swift and then wind it again. Oh well, it is always fun to see yarn on a skein.
