Question: Skein to ball? Tight knitter too.
Howdy again, Nicole here, making headway on my sock and getting ready for my next project: dishcloths!

I bought a skein of linen yarn. I'm assuming it needs to be rolled into a ball before I start using it? Normally when I get yarn, it's a center pull.. so this is new for me.

Also, I'm an incredibly tight knitter to the point that it's difficult to knit. I'm trying to loosen up, and start looser, but by the time I get to the end of the row I'm on, I'm tight again. Any suggestions? It doesn't help that I'm using bamboo needles either!

Thanks a bunch!!
OTN: My first project, a pair of wool socks.
Next up: linen dishcloths
