you knit holding two strands of yarn together, treating them as one.

Don't feel bad. There is no such thing as a dumb question when you're trying to learn something new. :D

you can do it either way. people knit from the outside of the skein and the inside of the skein. i don't really like doing that myself so i either divide the skein into two balls or i just use two to begin with.

i also wind two balls together...if i do more than two strands though i usually wind them into a regular ball instead of a center pull because i find they don't pull evenly from the inside on a center pull if i use more than two strands.
