I have been Wishful Knitting some sort of easy baby project. I have some Knit Picks Mighty Stitch kicking around in my stash. I had 1,248 of Celestial blue hanging out. It’s 80% acrylic/20% wool and good for baby knits. I made a Mighty Rainbow blanket for PB and while it’s very snuggley it does pill and shed a tiny bit. So it’s definitely not great for garments so I decided to go with a blanket. And to expedite the blanket making I decided to hold this worsted double to make bulky/super bulky.
Well…then yarn vomit jumped up and bit me. I am TERRIBLE at finding the ends in these pre-wound skeins. I dug around to find the ends and pulled out yarn tangles. So now instead of knitting….I get to untangle yarn. Sigh!
I just wanted to knit!!
I feel your pain. It seems like most of the Knit Picks yarn does that. Every skein of Stroll fingering yarn I own has a yarn vomit center.
Argh yarn vomit! I gave up trying to find the centre ages ago and now I just take the outside end and wind everything into centre-pull balls myself.
I hate it when that happens but there is something strangely satisfying about winding a ball too!

I hate when that happens! It is really hard to find the end in the middle. But you will get there – and then you will knit like the wind 🙂
That is a bummer when that happens
