Ya'll warned me that novelty yarn was difficult to work with. But, hell, I bought 5 balls of it and I didn't do so to look pretty sitting in my closet. So I thought I'd try a quick project to get the feel of the yarn.
I started out digging around in the guts of the ball, looking for the end, big mistake. It took me about an hour to unravel and rewind the ensuing mess and I ended up with 2 smaller center-pull balls - mistake number two. I guess this stuff is to be worked from the outside in; at least that's how I'm going to do it from now on unless one of you shows me a better way.
