Life is Too Short to Untangle Yarn

And I mean it.

Oh, how I hate skeins! Skeins, skeins, skeins!
Here comes John Cleese in my mind. "I hate it! Oh, I hate it! I hate it!"

Well, I do have a ball winder and a swift. Even if I use them, once in a while, I end up with a messed up skein.
Why? I don't know.

This morning, again, I had to deal with a skein of yarn, ClassicElite's Alpaca Sox.
It is wonderful yarn. I really love it.
Still it came here as a skein.

I know some shops offer service winding up yarn into a ball or two.
I heared skein makes yarn relaxed and that is good for yarn. And I believe it.
So, I wind yarn up just before I start to knit.

Anyway, I finished winding the yarn up and it is over. It took me more than an hour. What a waste of time! Life is too short to do the things like that. There's no time, you know.

By the way, I'm going to knit socks for my father with Alpaca Sox. I searched for the pattern in Ravelry and queued so many sock patterns. I make a queue not to forget. If I really want to knit (or crochet) that pattern, immediately I cast on or start crochetting.
Ravelry queue is more or less a memo to me.

Oh, I'm "Chihiro" at Ravelry.
