Working From Both Ends

Have you ever needed to use two strands of the same color of yarn but only had one skein? It has happened to me. I don’t like to roll off little balls of yarn when I need to double-strand something, so I work from both ends of the skein of yarn. I remove the skein band, and then locate the end that pulls from the middle and the end that is usually hidden by the skein band and unwraps from the outside. Admittedly, you have to be careful when pulling the yarn out to work with it, but if you hold the skein in your hand and smooth the strands as you work, it does not tangle.

One of the benefits of using both ends of the yarn is that one strand of color does not run out before the other one. You’re also not left with a partial skein and a separate ball that you then have to tie back together at some point.

Give it a try!
