I also, like Mother Hen always start with the inside end. Once in awhile it may be a little difficult to get started, but is much easier to work than have it roll around on the floor. The yarns I have to use from the outside are so aggravating to me. I absolutely love to watch the yarn come from within and watch the skein stand up as it unfolds with gentle pulling as I stitch. That's why I like the large skeins even better, you can work with it so much longer and have so fewer ends to weave in. They cost a little more per oz. but I'd rather pay the extra amount and have all that wonderful yarn flowing so freely.

As MH would say, just my opinion - everyone has one. God bless you no matter what end you start with. As I say, it's the journey that counts, and you'll get there no matter which end you choose.
