While I was in Carlsbad, California, Nancy asked me if it was better to pull from the center of the skein or the outside. I have always believed it was a matter of preference. Nancy told me that in sewing, there is a right and a wrong, because the thread wraps around itself when pulled the wrong way.
This got me thinking. Is there a right and a wrong way? What do you think? I'd love to hear your answers. I generally prefer a center pull, but Nancy got me paying attention and sure enough, the yarn wraps around itself when I choose to knit from the center.
