Second verse, same as the first

I am a little way into my blue stripey socks, and they are just not stripey enough. I did know that would happen when I dyed it, but obviously totally ignored it.

My problem is the skeining. It’s a real pain to get it back into a ball or a skein. Very labour intensive. I’m sure there’s a trick out there, because lots of people do stripes and I can’t imagine they take hours to reskein each one. Do they?

The only problem? A real bitch to get back into a sensible state. I need to find a way to do the skeining easily.
