I dunno what to tell you.. :shrug: so it has a big knot in it and won't wind for you? could you wind them into small balls? instead of fighting with the ribbon yarn? :wall: or ask someone to hold it in their arms (while you wind it?
DON'T CHUNK IT YET~~ If all else fails put it aside in a baggie, close it up, and leave it for tomorrow~!sometimes inspiration (or a break) gives you a different solution~!
Sorry you are so frutstrated~! :hug: When I first started knitting I tried Lion Chenille Thick n quick.. I finally had to throw in the towel~! :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall:
