I am hand-winding a center-pull ball from a hank, and I’m wondering if it matters (regarding twist) which end I start with. I’m nearly done, and I’ve done this many times, but I’ve always wondered it the yarn will twist more while knitting if you start with the wrong end. ?:??
No, It doesn’t matter which end you start with or which you start knitting with.
God love ya for hand winding a ball from a hank. You have more patience than I do.
What’s [I][B]really[/B][/I] taught me patience this week is spending about six hours undoing the huge knot all this yarn somehow got in after my daughter tried to “help” me by “unhanking” it. :hair:
But I’m almost done now, thank God!!
I do it all the time. Once you get the hang of it it goes pretty fast. Mine come out looking like the ones the ball winder does.
I’ve never even used a ball winder. I always wrap around two pencils, and you’re right, it’s really not much trouble.
