Knot A Problem!

Hey Ravelers!!

Wanna join my group?
A group for people who love to untangle or detangle skeins of yarn that are in a big, giant, tangled mess!
I started reading posts on Ravelry about people who got so frustrated when their yarn tangled - and then others' responses about how to get through it and tips and tricks - that's when I realized that I wasn't alone!
I have always enjoyed creating structure in chaos, I think that's why it's so satisfying for me to work on messed up ball of yarn.
A year or so ago, a knitting friend had a big pile of silk that she spent a lot of money on. She said that her daughter offered to "help" her wind it up.
Well, it became a pile of knots before she knew it, so I offered to untangle it for her - it took four hours.
As much as I love untangling, its only drawback is the time that taken away from knitting.
There's been discussion regarding offering our services... it will be interesting to see what happens!
