How do I start a new skein of yarn?

Insert your thumb and another finger of both hands into each end of the skein. Try to squeeze the skein so your fingers touch, giving you the ability to find the center of the skein. You can then pull the center out with one hand; you’ll also be pulling out extra yarn with it, but one end of the skein should be there.

How do you blend different yarn dyes?
