I know that sometimes knots show up in ball of yarn. It is just a thing, but damn it pisses me off, especially in a ball of yarn that is 55 yards long. Seriously, it is annoying. I knitted myself a towel with these 2 balls of bulky cotton yarn and midway through the towel smack in the middle of a row I had a knot. I should have tinked out the row, but knew I would need the yarn at the end. Now I wish I had just tinked the row. The towel is just for me so the messy middle will only bother me, but bother me it will. Damn knots.
