Was quite pleasantly surprised. However I am using two huge turkey size balls of yarn as well, I cannot even reach to the middle.
while house cleaning Sunday I had a minor freak-out cuz i had so many small unfinished projects laying around. In a desperate attempt to clean house (i swear, i was cleaning house, NOT crocheting...ok i WAS crocheting but it was in ORDER to clean house....really) I slammed thru 5 small unfinished projects. in the process I had to start 4 different skeins, and on not a ONE of them did either method work. 2 of the new skeins I had to spend around 15 minutes each getting the resulting knot untangled. one of them continues to tangle so badly still, despite having used up approx 1/3 of the skein.
