Why do some yarns come in a hank rather than a skein? I'm beginning to suspect it is so the hank-producers can laugh maniacally in their evil lairs....
I've never had a problem dealing a skein, but absolutely every single hank I've ever put my hands on turns into a ridiculous knotted mess while I try to roll it into a center-pull ball. It unwinds in silly ways, there are random pieces tied together with matching yarn, it's madness!
So...why is it, exactly, that some yarns are wound into hanks rather than skeins...and how in the heck do I roll them nicely into balls, there's gotta be a better way.
This random thought brought to you by...the mound of yarn on my bed
