A helping "item"
I don't know how many people are constantly frustrated by the newer way of winding yarn. Instead of the traditional "ball" of wool...some yarn manufacturers wind their yarn in "doughnut" balls. These look great, but tend to collapse as soon as you start using them. It's fine if their aren't many yards on the ball...but sometimes it gets tangled. This really frustrates me, anyway...I have come up with a way of ensuring the yarn comes off easily. I pop the doughnut ball over a kitchen roll holder, before taking the ball band off, then the yarn comes off smoothly and the ball is able to rotate freely as you pull it. It takes out having to constantly detangle your yarn.
