While moving this past week I found a new use for my de-tangling yarn skills — moving twine and rope untying.
You see, my husband is Navy and therefore skilled at tying some pretty elaborate knots. He decided to put these skills to use on our moving van. As we began to unload, I realized the endless hours of untangling yarn barfs made it extremely easy for me to untie the dizzying amount of knots he had created to keep our web of furniture secure in the van. So the next time you curse that yarn barf, think of it as practice for the next time you move.
