If your skein/hank of yarn gets horribly tangled - as yarn is wont to do when unsupervised even if you’d SWEAR you had it nice and neat when you put it away - at what point do you give up on trying to UNTANGLE it and just either throw it out or break out the scissors and try to judiciously make as few balls as you can?
I rarely give up, though I might put it into time out.
I love, love untying knots/untangling yarn, so I’m a time outer, too.
I’ve spent entire movies untangling yarn. It’s so satisfying.
