Yarn balls or Yarn cakes

Hi all hope you had a great Monday! Mine was pretty good, I am having a short week I am going to be off on Friday to attend Grandparents day at Molly’s school. should be fun.
I was thinking earlier as I was winding off a ball of yarn from a large skein what do other people prefer. I have this electric yarn winder and it makes the cakes of yarn. I don’t like it much the cakes are wound loosely and especially when I get near the end of a cake the yarn tangles as it comes off the ball and I really really like using a hand wound ball of yarn. I like how easily the yarn comes off the ball. There is also something very relaxing about winding a ball of yarn it is kinda soothing. I wind most of my yarn into smaller balls, these are some of my leftovers

I think they are easier to take with you and very rarely does it get tangled. A couple of weeks ago I tried winding a center pull ball by hand and really liked it, so I might invest in a nostepinne I used these instructionswhen I tried it I used a ruler and it worked fine. What is your preference cakes or balls? Ya’ll have a great week!!!
