A Different Kind of Work In Progress!

Errrrr …. no …. I’m NOT with child although in my mind, that’s one of the most beautiful WIPs in the whole wide world!  LOLOL!!!

The W.I.P that I’m talking about is one that’s been watching me since March 2011.  Yeah … I know … more than two years.

Let’s just back-track a little.  More than two years ago, when I was a yarn newbie, I bought some skeins from a now defunct Sanguine Gryphon.  The yarn arrived, they were beautiful but I didn’t have a swift; that umbrella, ella, ella, aye, aye, aye (I couldn’t resist saying that … LOLOL!) thingie used to make the yarn cakes.  So I tried to use a chair … one that didn’t MOVE people!!!!!  So my ball-winder was going but the chair was not spinning so a ball could form.  Then I tried to untangle the small tangle that happened to the yarn and I ended up with a colossal mess.  I was so “over it” I just chucked the tangle in my yarn stash and ignored it with consistent regularity!  LOLOL!  Every time I went into my stash, it was begging me to untangle it.  But I was not swayed; I was never in the mood to untangle 420 yds of fingering yarn!  LOLOL!

I went through my stash this week for a swap I’m participating in. After I packed everything up, I found that the bag with the tangled mess was left out.  I took that as a sign!  LOLOL!   Since getting to my stash is sometimes so inconvenient, I just decided to go ahead and sort it out.

So I started with this:

A Different Kind of WIPand after a few hours … I had this:

IMG_2661I’m going to try my best to finish this tomorrow.  There is something therapeutic to be said about trying to find the end.  Every time I untangle a few yards, I tell myself, just a few more.  Weird, I know.  So while I’m sweltering in this heat-wave we’re having here, I’m going to work on this becoming an F.O. 😀  Other than the yarn being totally awesome and use-worthy,  I need to get my money’s worth from this pretty!!!  😛
