Secure Button on End of Yarn

When making a ball of yarn, secure a button (with a shank) or some other similar item to the end of yarn at the beginning and hold on to it while continuing to wrap the yarn. This allows you to use the yarn from the center (as we all want to do) and not lose the beginning end of the yarn. Now, if someone already knew this, "shame" on you for not sharing it with me before now. (just kidding)

I have been rolling yarn into balls for years and never thought to work from the center. What a cool idea!

I like the ball better than the skein so this would be perfect for keeping them from rolling all over the place when I am working someplace without a bowl!!
