mamabulldog asked: When you buy yarn do you do anything special to it? Do you have a ball winder or anything like that? I recently purchased some yarn from a local shop and she wound it for me and I thought it was fascinating. I even purchased a ball winder from Amazon because I thought it would save me so much room. Just curious <3
I only ball yarn if it comes in an unusable hank, like Cascade 220 or Malabrigo. Usually if it’s already wound into a skein, I just keep it in the skin and try to find the center pull :). I do have a ball-winder and yarn swift, and they come in very handy when necessary!
