I was informed one should wind a skein of yarn into a ball before using the yarn. Any suggestions from you knitters as to whether this is a fact or not? I do have a ball winder I purchased that works fine but if it is necessary won’t go to the trouble. Oh, also have a container purchased from Jo-Ann’s to hold my yarn, has a hole in the top so the yarn does not tangle so would this be sufficient? I am pretty new at this and so far have only used yarn in balls. Thanks for any suggestions and wish each and everyone of you a wonderful Christmas, much Health and Happiness in the New Year.
