question about knitting with wool  
Okay, so I've never knit with wool before today. Do any of you lovely people have advice about what I should do about my beginning end trying to unravel as I knit? Is there a way to keep it all wound up nicely like it was when I started?

I think this is less of a wool issue and has more to do with how the yarn is spun. Lion Brand's Homespun, for instance, unravels something terribly--my starting end basically looked like a pony's tail after a while. What I'd probably do is go ahead and weave the end in now, even though you're still working on the piece. That should help prevent it from unraveling any more.

Ah, why didn't I think of that? That's an excellent idea. Thanks!
