Are you kidding me???

I found the coolest yarn at the end of last week.  It is Done Roving Yarns Frolicking Feet Transitions.  It comes in the form of a yarn cake within a plastic container that serves kind of like a yarn bowl.  There is a little hole in the top of the container that the yarn feeds through.   frolickingfeet05(Photo is from Sheepish where I purchased it)

The colors are wonderful.  I started a shawl with my yarn on Friday night and continued work on it during the football game on Saturday:


Loving the simple knitting and the long color repeats.  Until Sunday night when I reached the next color…

KNOTTED!!!  Are you effing kidding me????  Someone should be taken out and flogged for this.  No one thinks that knots in a skein of yarn is a good idea.  And on top of that, since I didn’t see it coming, I had to TINK back half a row so I could cut the yarn and start the row with the new color. 

I still love the colors and everything else about the yarn so I will carry continue with the shawl and hopefully will get around to posting a picture of the finished project. But still so frustrating!
