I've never had a "skein" of yarn like the 2 skeins I got of the Shepherd socks by Lorna's Laces. I made a real mess and FINALLY got 1 into a ball. How do I make sure I can get it , um, balled...the next time??
I'm Bluebird49 at Ravelry!!
OTN--Just socks right now. Not good at more than 1 thing at a time!

do you have a swift? i would guess the problem came in it getting tangled out of the hank? if you don't have a swift then you are going to have to find something to put it around when you are winding. I use to use the screen on my laptop so i could wind whilest talking to all of you. back of a chair works, hands of a kid/spouse/so being held hostage works too.
pretty much anything that will keep the hank from pulling itself into a tangled mess really.
