Over the years, I have become an expert de-tangler. One of the upsides of having a huge yarn stash though, is that if I get too annoyed at a tangle, I just cut it out. Some yarns are precious and some I have enough abundance that I don't waste the time.

What is the longest amount of time you have ever spent detangling yarn? How long do you work with it before you cut-bait?

no yarn should be wasted so i will work until it proves beyond reason it will not let go of the last knot. hours..... but this practice allowed me to free a young girls hair from a comb rather then cut her hair, it took me almost an hour to set her completely free.

This morning I strained a wrist detangling and decided I'm a moron. It wasn't worth trying and I'm going to be less likely not to cut and go in the future.

That is such an excellent question, Ellen!
I have spent hours detangling things as well, schoolgirl hair included! I can certainly relate to fracksmom above.
I can't remember how long precisely it has taken to detangle yarn, but there was one project that took so long, I had to tackle it in smaller doses over a number of days, setting it aside as soon as my concentration waned.
