What I should have tried instead was pulling from both the center and outside of the skein at the same time. Skeins and cakes are perfect for one-skein double-stranded projects. Just pull one strand from the center and one strand from the outside. Easy peasy.
Toys are already super easy to knit, and knitting these kitties with two strands at the same time cuts the knitting time in half. Knit them with three strands held together for an even quicker knit.
