How did this happen?

I'm knitting this vest with 2 strands of yarn held together. All of a sudden, I looked down and saw to my horror that 1 ball is DONE! (the other is a tangled mess, but I digress...)

How did this happen? They were both new balls of the same yarn. Am I putting more tension on one strand but not the other? Is one getting wrapped around the other enough to make this difference? Or, were the balls not really the same length to begin with?

Gonna untangle the mess, tie the other end to the short end, and knit on!

The yarn companies say that yardage can vary by as much as 10% per skein and I found that to be true on many occasions.
