Been there, done that, never again! One person to make sure the yarn is coming out of the skein, and another to make sure it's properly winding onto the tube.

Here is my favorite way to wind yarn. Mine are not as pretty as the video but they are easy to work with. Even pulling from the outside they stay put pretty well. I dislike having to jerk to get the yarn, having balls roll all over the place and this one works well for me. I have also been placing my yarn (pull skein or wound ball) in a shopping bag (the $1 kind that are at every store) or a small cardboard box, set on the floor. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2HxJBXVoww&index=54&list=PL8aJvHvAJIEYxaEOa9bYAbzqgrztg0Hwc

I've frequently used the hand-mixer-method. Love it.

It looks like fun. I don't have a whisk attachment for my mixer 😢

I found this video after taking a weaving class with this weaving instructor. It works really well for winding yarn. I use it all the time for knitting.
Costs more than the paper towel roll, but worth it in my opinion.

This is the method I use. I much prefer a center-pull ball, because it doesn't go rolling all over the place. Since I often take my knitting with me, I want it smaller, too. It really doesn't take that much time.

I tried it and all I got was a big mess. I will stick to the old way that I do it.

I have been teaching new knitters how to do the balll winding on their thumb because when I am out with my knitting I need to wind up what is left over or clean up some tangles and I don't have my ball winder. Yes, it is a slow process but it works.
