Okay --- so I'm trying to teach myself to knit and have mastered a scarf (yeah!) I'm trying out a baby blanket pattern that calls for 2 strands of yarn held tog. Any advice for the casting on the 2 strands to get started. This may be a dumb question, but do you have the 2 strands off of 2 skeins or do you use the 2 ends of the same skein?
If you never go out on a limb you miss one heck of a view
Everytime I try to pull from the end and center of a skein of yarn I ALWAYS get knots so if you can afford it I would use two skeins at one time. Plus, you can always find fun projects for leftover yarn.
I unravel (well, make a new ball with) about 1/2 of my skein, and then use the middle to start my CO. Then I have 2 balls, but only need one skein.
