In the book The Sweater Workshop the author describes the Japanese method of making a "yarn cocoon". You wrap the yarn on your left hand in such a way that it forms a long, center pull "ball". The yarn is wrapped in what looks like a figure 8 pattern. The great thing about it is that it lies flat so it doesn't roll around. I will be making one soon so I will try to post a picture.
