I don’t know about everyone else, but I find it rather convenient to have a pull from the middle ball of yarn. So, that’s what I did. I found this video, and tried it out for myself. At first I used a 19 mm knitting needle, as that was all I had, but that didn’t work all too well. To little. So I went and found an empty paper towel roll, and it was FABULOUS!
Also pictured is part of the second batch of mocha rounds for a blanket I’m working on.
