Re: How to make a skein?
I like to put two chairs upside down and facing each other so the the part that sits in the crook of your knee is touching, and the legs are pointing up and away from each other. Does that make sense? LOL Then I wrap the yarn around one leg from each chair and just keep winding. Once it's all wound, I remove, twist tightly, then let it twist back on itself. Voila! A skein! I tuck the ends into each other to hold the twist.
Clear as mud right?
