Earlier this week I bought another skein of Colinette Giotto in the gorgeous Raspberry colourway from a Ravelry destash.
I'm itching to get started on another Ripple Drop-Stitch Scarf, so tonight I decided to wind the skein into a cake ready to get started.
Although the skeined yarn looked pristine, it didn't quite go as expected once I removed the band from the skein!
There were no ties around the skein so it was impossible to tell where the centre of all the loops was..
I had to unwind the yarn painfully slowly by hand into a bowl, using the swift just for support..
Giotto bolognese anyone?!
Perseverence and patience paid off in the end though.
Now to cast on!
