retro yarn...

here are a couple skeins of my retro yarn... i don't necessarily know how old they are, but apparently target once sold them individually like wal-mart... i think my mom gave me a big bag of yarn a couple years back, and she may have it for longer... and considering she bought it at a rummage (or perhaps, the thrift store), who knows how old these skeins actually are?! the orange one is the lion brand, the only brand i actually am familiar with! i have many browns around so if i attempt to make any more knitted babes, i will have many morenas lying around here... at least with using old-skool yarn, my babes will surely have a vintage look just like my miss edna...

by the way, i am wondering if you are supposed to ball up the yarn or keep it it in its original shape?! i think i need the stitchionary or something, so i can figure out this knitting bizness much better

you don't need to wind the yarn you have pictured into balls! but, if the yarn looks like this, you do.
