Ok, I’m pretty embarassed to ask this question…but the other day, my mom was practicing her knitting (I just taught her three weeks ago), and her husband was watching her. Well, Mom complained a bit about having to stop every now and then to unwind some more yarn from the skein. Her husband then replied to her that she’s having to do that because she didn’t wind the yarn into a ball before she started knitting.
We’re supposed to wind skeins of yarn into balls of yarn? Does everyone do that? How could I have been knitting since September and not know this?? :doh:
