I wanted to (282) myself a sweater. When I asked my mother for some wool, she directed me to the old cloth bag under the stairs. This was the bag (283) which my mother had over the years (284) all the remains from sweaters, scarves, cardigans, and gloves that she had knitted for herself (285) the family. When I opened the bag-I screamed "What a mess!" All the wool had tangled itself into a huge knot. I said to my mother, "it's hopeless." All the wool is so badly mixed. (286) can I even detangle it, let alone knit a sweater from it. "She smiled and said, "It's easier (287) you think. All you have to do is look for the easiest knot and undo that (288) that is done, the next knot will be easier. Just keep on doing this, until all the wool is unraveled".I (289) as my mother had told me to, and sooner than I had thought, the wool started to loosen and different colors (290) to emerge. Very soon, instead of one huge untidy bunch of wool, I had several neat balls in (291) of me.
