Skeins vs. Balls

So I am switching from yarn balls to yarn skeins. This is because it took an unreasonable time to wind balls neatly (but not to tightly) by hand, which stressed me out before every shipment and update. So after a visit to the boat store, se previous post, I got a cool little thingy, in swedish called “öppningsbart kastblock”, some sort of pulley contraption, that will make the skein winding so, so much easier. I actually really like how the self striping yarn looks in the skeins, it is striping and more closely resembling the knitted fabric. I  hope that this will not deter anyone from buying lovely hand dyed self striping sock yarn.
