Whether you want to divide a skein in half for toe up socks, or two at a time socks, or for two fingerless mitts, sometimes you just need to wind TWO balls out of ONE skein.

For this project, you’ll need a ball winder and a yarn swift! To make it SUPER easy, grab yourself a food scale next time you are at Target or Wal-Mart. THIS makes it SUPER easy!

In fact, I just used this method to divide a skein into FOUR balls for a pair of socks, as I am using multiple colors, and now I can make several pairs!
