How to Wind Yarn into a Ball
Winding your yarn into a ball can be a pleasing, meditative experience. As the yarn moves through your fingers, think about how you would describe it.
- How is the new yarn different from the last one you worked with?
- Is the strand flat or round? Lofty or dense? Slippery or toothsome?
- Do you think the stitches you knit will stand out or are they softened by a halo?
- When you tug at the yarn, does it bounce back?
If you haven't wound yarn by hand before, take a look at this video to see how it is done.
