Dearest knitting comrades. Is your yarn constantly getting attacked by little balls of fuzzy fluff which latches onto your current working yarn and just gets bigger and bigger as you keep knitting. Or is it just my yarn?
The perpetrator looks like this:
Now I have a sneaking suspicion that I am causing them myself. Perhaps I pull to tightly on the working yarn, but I really do try to keep it loose.
Anyway it is getting very annoying. I constantly have to stop knitting (every 15 rows or so) to cut them off – done by hacking away with my Stanley knife.
If I don’t cut them off the fuzz ball just gets bigger and bigger and eventually cannot bu pulled down the yarn anymore and therefore creates knots.
Help me. Please…
