Thanks for the quick replies! Hmm, yep I have a small scale here that weighs up to 2 lbs. Maybe rolling into balls by weight is the best way to handle this.
LOL, I have quite a bit of yarn for somebody that hasn't made much stuff! Must be all that dreaming about making stuff.
I've acutally discovered that it's not the skein that's twisting the yarn, but appears to be happening more at the needles. (I think). A plastic tub and about 20 clockwise spins of the skein every 3 rows or so kept me pretty tangle free.
I'm done with the knitting part on that scarf. Whew! Next time I'll try a different approach. I have 4 more of the same scarf to make for x-mas gifts for my nieces... different colors of course.
