Tuesday Tip – How to Wind a Center Pull Ball of Yarn
We’ve all had those annoying issues with a pesky skein of yarn. Either we can’t find the center, or we pull out a giant hunk of yarn . . . otherwise known as yarn barf.
In today’s tip I share my favorite little knitting trick

That is such a brilliant trick / skill ! Thank you so much
Why would you pull from the center? Based on several ‘yarnbarf’ experiences, I always unravel from the outside of the ball while I knit. Thanks, Nancy
If a skein is put up as a center pull ball, that’s how it’s meant to be worked. When you pull from the center, the ball of yarn is not rolling all over the floor or getting tangled up in a bag. When a ball is put up in a donut put up, it’s best to work from the outside. A hank of yarn must be wound, and a ball winder will wind it as a center pull ball.
