Winding yarn?

ok so this isn’t a knitting question per se, crocheters wind yarn into balls as well! but how does one put a skein of yarn onto a swift? a hank I can do, but I don’t understand skeins… any thoughts?

Deleted because I was wrong… ooops

I call the long unwound skein, a hank. A regular skein is aleady in a center pull fashion so you can knit from it. You can’t put a wound skein on a swift and I don’t see a reason to re-wind it, though many do.

You most certainly can make a center pull ball or skein into a hank with the use of a niddy noddy. A search will pull up directions on how to use one.

:doh: You’re right… Teach me to respond late at night!
