I haven’t knitted anything all summer (yeah, I know that’s like blasphemy here), but suddenly it started getting cold and I went to look in my stash box and there was yarn and it was pretty and soft and warm…
But anyway, I have a question. I have a huge skein of Knitpicks Bare sockweight yarn. It’s something like 440 yards per skein, and I want to make a pair of socks from it. I’ve dyed it and made a centre pull ball and I intend to start one sock from the inside and one from the outside so I can do them at more or less the same time (I’m paranoid about running out of yarn and not being able get more that’s dyed the same colour). However, I would be much happier with two balls of yarn. Is there any easy way to split one skein of yarn into two skeins/balls that are of equal length without having to string the yarn through my (tiny) apartment and measure it? Or having to deal with masses and masses of tangled yarn vomit?
