Hi everyone, now this may sound a bit stupit but, I got 6 skeins of wool, I need to know if I have to rewind it into ball, I have never done this before. thanks. x
I rather wish I'd thought of that, but it didn't occur to me, and I've just found a random knot in my yarn. Grr...Sorlenna said:I think it depends on how it's wound to begin with. If it is a pull through skein, you don't have to rewind it; if it's a looped skein (for lack of a better word), you will. I usually do all mine anyway (even the pull throughs), because it lets me find any knots, bad places, etc. before I start knitting with it. I get really annoyed when I am knitting along and suddenly a knot or weak or bumpy place turns up.
Why might your very valid question "sound a bit stupid"? Do you know anyone who was born knowing anything about anything? We all spend our lives learning; when we stop learning, we're dead - even if still breathing. There's a very true saying, "The only stupid question is the one that goes unasked." Ask fearlessly! The answer you get will also answer the unasked questions of others more shy than you. :-Ddonnameg said:Hi everyone, now this may sound a bit stupid but, I got 6 skeins of wool, I need to know if I have to rewind it into ball, I have never done this before. thanks. x
