It all started when I wanted to actually use a skein of hand dyed thread that I own.
I opened it, pulled a length out to go around the skull in the "Dia... " quilt (see following post) and that worked fine.
The next time I looked in the bag, the whole skein had a Twister party and the mess was overwhelming.

It was more knotted than Cole's hair after a bath. So I thought...
Okay, I'll find the ends and just put it on some empty spools while watching survivor. I'm still untangling it this morning, and it's
I have two spools going, weaving in and out, wrapping when I can. It reminds me of my necklace drawer as a teenager. I like a puzzle but. And look at all I have ahead of me!!
Moral, let the thread know who's boss, and be boss, and keep it tightly under control at all times.
