There was a slight delay in my knitting progress due to the fact that the upper back of my sweater looked like this. That should be a sea of smooth stockinette, but what you see is the weird result of knitting with frogged yarn. I’ve knit many projects with frogged yarn before, and this has never happened to me, but I can think of no other explanation. The crazy curly yarn created a rippled texture, because no matter what I did, the further the stitches got from my needles, the more they’d readjust themselves to be too big or too small. It’s completely bizarre.
I ended up reskeining all of the balls of frogged yarn and giving them a good soak. I let them hang to dry, and they’re finally ready to be knit up again. There’s still a bit of kink left, but the yarn is closer to back to normal. I usually skip this step when I’m working with frogged yarn, but now I can see why some people always take the time to do it! Has this ever happened to you before?
