Use any yarn on the knitting machine
Sadly, sources for yarn that is put up on cones has dwindled greatly. Most mills don’t put yarn up on cones for home knitters.
If you haven’t tried using hand knitting yarn in balls, hanks or skeins … you are missing out.
Balls, Hanks, Skeins, Cones … if the yarn fits your machine, you can use it!
Use a ball winder for skeins and hanks. Some machine knitters re-wind balled yarn as well.
Often yarn can be knit without re-winding
Make it in a weekend!
