I cannot be the only person who has this problem. I get a supposedly center pull ball, done commercially. I follow the instructions to 'pull the loose end out of center, insert fingers into either side and then pull beginning out of center'. Every time I try to find the beginning of a center pull ball, I get this:
It doesn't seem to matter what method I try, I still get the same awful mess. Half the skein/ball barfs out and I wind up wrapping the whole thing up by hand to find the beginning. Phooey.
