Yarn by its nature has a propensity to get knotted, generally this is artistically intended in the process of such crafts as knitting and crochet. However, there are times when yarn self knots and becomes a yarn barf, I suspect this may happen when yarn is bored of waiting to be creatively knotted into something beautiful, but that’s just a theory.
Yesterday I decided to deal with an extremely rebellious ball of Adriafil Floris Classic which had not only morphed into a yarn barf, but had had a whole family of them too, quite a mess. It didn’t take me too long to tame the beast and rewind it, I quite enjoy the challenge of de-barfing yarn.
From the depths of the library Chris remarked that I seem to be quite good at dealing with yarn barfs, I quietly replied, “It’s because I’m a yarn whisperer…” I think Chris may have guffawed briefly before returning to his netting endeavours.
