Myth Busting - Yarn for Knitting Machines

We often get these questions from new knitters:
  • Do I need special yarn for my machine?
  • What yarn can I use with my machine?
  • Do I have to re-wind yarn in balls or center pull skeins?
Let's explore the topic of yarn! We'll dispel some myths, outline some facts, and get in trouble voicing some strong opinions on the subject.
If you are an experienced knitter, please join in with your words of wisdom for other knitters.
