I know that 'knotaproblem' just asked a similar question, but what people say for him might not be the same for me, so here it goes.

ball vs skein?

I have a pattern that calls for 4 balls of yarn. Is this the same as a skein? I thought things came in different amounts so you need to get the right amount by either weight (ounces) or yards.

swifts and ball winders

Are there good and bad ball winders and swifts out there or are they pretty much equal?

Help with Pattern instructions

Ok, so maybe I'm crazy, who cares. The only way to learn and get better is to challenge myself right?

Thank you so much everyone for tolerating such a sickly Kenny (the way john says it)………

would this work?

So I am making my son a hat, and now my 3 year old daughter has asked for one (of course) But she has a TON of hair and wears huge pony tails etc, and a hat would pretty much be useless for her.
