Getting neat balls of yarn without a ball winder

Any help/ links on how I would convert my long hanks into neat balls or yarn?

Thanks!

On the basic techniques page here there’s a video on how to wind a center pull ball by hand.

Thanks! [size=2]I gotta learn to check there first! :oops: [/size]

I also find that I’m much less likely to cut off circulation in my thumb if I transfer the ball to something roughly stick-shaped when following that video. :wink:
