Hi, I'm Ellen from The Chilly Dog. I'm getting ready to cast on another pair of Rebound Socks, but before I do, I need to wind my yarn into a cake or rather into two cakes.
These socks are knit with Schoppel das Paar yarn, and even though this looks like a single hank, it's actually two matching hanks twisted together. That allows you to knit two socks with matching color patterns.
So I'm just going to remove the label on the yarn, and then let's head over to my work table and I'll show you how to separate the hanks and wind them into matching cakes.
We're gonna start things off by untwisting our hank and setting it onto our swift.
Once you get everything spread out, you'll notice that there are two yarn ties on your hank. On one side, the two yarn ties are just holding the two hanks apart.
The other tie, actually the two hanks are connected to each other.
You can see here that this one, it's keeping them separated, but they're also connected to each other. That's the one that I'm going to cut first.
I'm just going to snip that one and then I can begin winding my first cake of yarn.
And It doesn't really matter which end you pull from, just as long as for the first cake and the second, you're gonna pull from the same color. So I think I'm gonna use the yellow.
