My crafting pet peeve!

My biggest pet peeve is when I can't get my yarn to start correctly (you know from the inside).

I'm working on a baby blanket and my one color would not start correctly so now I am stuck unwinding it from the outside which is driving me crazy.

what is your crafting pet peeve?

Inconveniently-placed knots in my yarn make me want to throw things. Lol

Oh I agree with both of you ladies!!!  Along with not being able to find the yarn colors I need locally, we have no yarn shop in town and our wal-mart SUCKS for yarn selection!

That is awesome!

I'll have to get some grommets so they are "finished". But I definitely will be trying this!

Thanks for posting it.

me too; plus the knots thing; and the yarn availability

and when my toddler thinks he's helping me by throwing my yarn ball around the room to unroll it for me. okay, that one's pretty entertaining, but still, I don't like working with yard off a hard wood floor.

I have a yarn ball winder now, so I make all my skeins center pulls. That was a pet peeve of mine. Now, I think when I find when two ends of yarn are knotted together to continue the skein. It's not so bad when I make amigurumi, but hats are another story.
