    Great timing! Upcoming project will probably involve me buying my first ever skein. Last big one involved tearing out kms of old project. Checking prices of ball winders now.

    That’s too funny! The poor cat!

  3. TheDailyKnitter

    That is the most apt demonstration that I have ever seen ;)

    Keep it up!

    It’s a hank… not a skein. Hanks aren’t wound, skeins are.

    hank, skein, whatevs.

  6. Melody

    Haha! Sorry, that’s probably my fault. I’m the artist, but I’m not a knitter so when I get the scripts, I get a little confused with some of the terms.

    that is what discouraged me, sept i tight it up and cant get it undone.

  8. Julesbug

    Hilarious!

    It IS a skein, there are just regional differences in terms. Some places call it a hank, but most call it a skein.

    How about knitting tips? FOr example, you can use an empty Rx bottle to secure the end of a skein and then wind the yarn around and around the plastic bottle … they come in different sizes, too, depending on whether you need a large one for heavier yarns … etc. Also, try stretching the yarn across your knees, sit up straight, and wind while talking with anyone who won’t be offended if you wind while you talk ….. LOL

    I invite my” knitting friend” over for a cuppa and home bake. Then she holds the hanks while I hand wind them into a ball.”captivated audience” and wonderfull chat time. One day I’ll destash.
