Oh the woes of new yarn.
When I first started crocheting, I grabbed the yarn end I could see (from the outside). I struggled with my yarn rolling away from me and getting stuck for a few years til I saw some instructions about pulling from the center. I was SOOOOOO excited! And once it got started, it really made a difference. Life was swell!
Until I needed to start a new skein.
It always seems so simple, and yet it’s not. I reach in to grab the center and pull… and then I ALWAYS end up with a huge pile of yarn. If I don’t use it up quickly, I’ll get interrupted, stash my project in its bag and come back to a completely tangled mess.
Caron Simply Soft does a nice job of giving me a starting center pull end (though rumor has it that kind of yarn seems to split when you center pull).
I know I’m not alone in this – so to all you fellow center pull pile makers, I’m with you.
