I realize that I'm probably one of the last knitters to have a swift but this thing is FANTASTIC!!!:woohoo: My old faithful ball winder finally bit the dust about two weeks ago and since the swift and winder could be purchased together....went ahead and bought them. They came in the mail yesterday.
Very, very cool....what usually takes me hours to complete because of my lack of anyone that'll help me...or the fact that placing the skein on a chair or other available object is just awkward, painfully difficult or nearly impossible...now only takes a few minutes!!! I am so very excited about this new knitting/yarn gadget that I just had to share. Oh yes, and I have a lil helper, too!!! (She didn't come with it) :teehee:
My advise to anyone that purchases or wants to purchase yarn in skeins....BUY ONE OF THESE! So easy even a three year old can use it!
