I just stick my hand into the center and pull out a wad. Then it's easy to poke around and find the end. You don't really have to worry about messing anything up. You'll see that there is only one length of yarn leading from the wad to the main skein so when you use up the little ball you'll be automatically pulling from inside the skein. Most big-brand commercially available yarns are meant to be used from the inside. If you work from the outside you are running the risk of working in opposition to the twist of the yarn.
