    The inside. I remember something about using the outside of the skein does something to the 'twist' & it tends to unravel?? I don't know. I just like using it from the middle because then I don't have to chase the dang skein around when it unwinds.

    When I use to crochet I always pulled it from the inside. Haven't done it in years - cannot even remeber how to get it started.

    So...is it wierd to unroll the skein and then roll it back up into a ball? That's the way my mamma taught me, so that's what I do!

    every time I try to use it from the inside, it ends up with a huge knotted mess hiding inside -

    so, to make life easier - I just use it from the outside -

    I do it occassionally. Especially if the skein is constantly knotting up or if all I get from the center is "yarn vomit". I just give up & wind a center pull ball I don't wind them just into balls though. I hate chasing the darned things...
