This is mostly just a mini-vent....does anyone else get as endlessly frustrated with "pull-out" skeins that WILL NOT pull-out? they're wrapped as if you should be able to. You can't really "Unroll" it from the outside cuz then it will either get dirty rolling around on the floor, or stuck in your yarn feeder/jar, or you're constantly yanking on it in order to get more yarn.
so....you DIG DIG DIG into the middle of the skein trying to find the end....you guess, then start tugging. tug on the wrong bit, and you have a knot. now you have no choice but to pull the whole )(*@#$%)(* knot out, and start untangling it.
so, what the @)$(%* is the point of a pull-out skein that won't pull out? I've run into this with soooo many yarn. i wouldn't think it would be soooo difficult to snag the end on something in the factory so that it's possible to find the bloody thing when you want to USE it.
