LOL!!!  I woke up this morning at 5am, all excited to start a new project and my cats attacked my yarn!!  I spent an hour and a half balling up yarn!!  I just wrap it around my hand a good 10-20 times, slip it off and just start winding around until it's a ball. 
I haven't been able to watch this yet, but i heard it's really good, it's a yarn video:

Hope this helps!!

i'm sure there is a specific technique for rolling a ball of yarn  but i just wrap my skeins into a ball with no specific pattern or 'way' of doing it... and they come out in spheres and are MUCH easier than working straight from a new skein.... Smiley
