Obvious Winding?

I am sure this is going to be obvious, but I can’t seem to make it work:

I dyed some wool for the first time over the weekend. It is currently drying in a large “circle” of yarn. I would like to wind it like this:

How do I twist this and secure it? I don’t think the colors will show as nice as a ball.


Take your circle with a hand on opposite sides of it. Hold still with one hand and twist with the other until it starts to curl up. Stick one end of your twist into the other end; the twist will keep it secure.
