what i do to wind hanks into balls (i cheat, i have a ball winder! best purchase i've ever made!) is to set one of my smaller plastic bins on the floor and the hank around it in a big "O" shape... prevents it from getting tangled (i tried the back of the chair, kept snagging.... tried having my son hold it and had the same issue) The only issue I have is that I need to make sure the door to my craft room is closed when i do this because I have a cat that likes to pounce the yarn, another that likes to sleep on it and a third that tries to grab the strand with her paw and pull it to her nose to smell (yes, she's an odd one!)
