Balling the skein

Instead of relying on somebody else's arms, I have decided to use my legs instead - I sit on a couch with pants or shorts, bend my knees to my chest and drape the yarn around my upper thighs and shins. And I can watch TV while I do it :)

I guess you have to be sort of limber to do it, but I do it that way too. No one around here is interested in holding the yarn for me.

I've used a variation on that method, except sitting on the floor. I sit on the floor a lot, so I guess that's why. Yeah, I don't see the need to ask anyone to hold the yarn for me...also, someone else isn't always around. Gotta be self-sufficient!
