I finally finished rolling my one pounder into a ball. That was painful. It is so large it was hard to hold onto, and the yarn never pulled off the skein smoothly. I dread that I have two more to roll. The Pinpoint Blanket calls for three one pounders, eek.
I'm going to just happily make squares till I run out then I'll deal with it. In desperation I asked my husband if he'd be willing to hold the skein while I roll on the next one. Such a look of horror.
Rolling yarn into balls is normally fun for me and relaxing, but I'm looking now at the other large skeins I've bought in a bit of a large skein craze/phase I went through, that I'm now totally cured of.
I don't think pictures do justice to the size of the thing. I suppose it will roll off my lap and take out the refrigerator, in a tragic accident.
