I wonder if the knot situation has to do with the cone setup. I noticed at Green Mountain Spinnery that yarn is available in roughly 10 ounce cones or 4-ounce skeins. I declined the cones because I thought I'd end up with too many partial skeins. Why not 12 ounces??? I had my yarn processed directly into skeins and I've noticed knots here and there in them, so they probably wind off those cones when they make them, just like i would have.

I should have asked why they don't make bigger cones... (I think it has to do with the steaming process but I'm not sure.)

The whole milk yarn thing seems very odd to me!! I'm with you on the knots, too. Of course, not so bad with a solid color - but oh, curse you, Noro. Curse you.

Knots are SO aggravating. It's like the factory people don't actually knit with their yarn. It kills me that it's almost always one skein with a billion knots. And it's almost always "luxury" yarn that you pain too much for. Why don't they sell the knotty skeins at a discount, or save them for people who are running out of yarn on their project and don't care about the knows as long as it's the same dye lot? That's what I would do.

Can you tell that this is one of my pet peeves?

I'm not a fan of knots either, though I've come to accept that an occasional knot is just part of knitting. However, three knots per skein is unacceptable. How frustrating!

It is a big pet peeve of mine too. It says the yarn company doesn't value my time or my energy.
