hank, skein, or ball Words using with yarn

This is an interesting discussion of the words hank, skein, and ball and how they are used in yarn talk. I love that the author has gone beyond just how he/she uses it, and searches for the history and etymology of the words. Being a word freak, and enjoying searching etymologies, I enjoyed the blog post.

But, I've gotten distracted, I was searching for the history of machine-wound, center-pull skeins. Back to researching.
