This is the first time that I've been so careful about reusing yarn. Usually I just knit right from the frogged yarn. Then again, usually, I'm reknitting a piece on which I've made a huge mistake. I think that this is the first time that I've done a knitting about face and changed a project midstream.

Once this Blue Sky Alpaca Silk dries, I can wind it up and begin Claudette!

A watched pot never boils. Does watched yarn never dry?

 

Take the weights off and blowdry it. I have been that impatient.

It does if you turn on the oven and point a fan at it while you watch!

If you can spin it out in a top-loading washer, it dries a lot faster.... But it will all be worth it in the end! Like-new yarn is much more fun than crinkly kinked yarn. :)

Good for you! I know it's best to re-wet frogged yarn and then block it with weights like what you're doing, but I rarely have the patience.
