When balls of yarn don’t unravel as expected when knitting

I am currently knitting a baby blanket and working with 5 balls of deliciously luxurious Filatura Di Crosa Prestige Baby yarn, at once.

And this is how they end up if you are not careful.

Then you have to ravel back up by hand to continue using it. Very frustrating but the wool is gorgeous.

  1. I’m SO with you on the unraveling balls. I’ve seen other bloggers use those little yarn bowls to keep it tidy, and I’m thinking about trying that. The blanket looks great! I love the border especially. :-)
