Tangled messes

So Pinterest can be misleading. I read how if you washed your yarn ahead of time and added fabric softener, it would be softer and fluffier.  The instructions said to use a mesh bag which I did. But I think I should have re-balled the yarn tightly first and tucked in the loose ends. This is how it looked when I took it out of the dryer. (It was fine when I took it out from the washer.)


It’s a good thing I like to untangle things, like jewelry, yarn, Christmas tree lights, etc. I’ve been told I have the patience of Job and in lots of cases that’s true.  Here’s the neatly wound balls.


But it got me to thinking. Wouldn’t life be great if we could untangle our messes as easily as we do other things?  I have some circumstance in my life that I’d love to untangle with no loose strings. I don’t like loose strings.

How about you? Maybe if you could find something to physically untangle, it would help you to feel you were in charge of something.  Try it. It couldn’t hurt.
