Birthday presents!

So, yesterday (Tuesday) was my birthday, and I got knitting presents!

First, I got yarn for my first sweater. I’m making Wicked in artyarn’s supermerino 155. I looovvve the color, and I can’t wait to start on the sweater.

And, they surprised me with a swift!!! Which made me realize how knitting obsessed I am because, when they bring down the long skinny box, the first thing I think is “OMG! I think it’s a swift!”

that’s a beautiful colorway! :yay: and a swift! lucky girl! happy birthday :slight_smile:

Ooh nice! That yarn is going to make such a beautiful sweater!!! :woot:

Wooo that is pretty!! Happy birthday!

:inlove::inlove::inlove: LOVE the color!

And, oooh, a swift! I have placed some heavy handed hints for a swift & ball winder for my upcoming b’day! How nice!!

happy birthday and wow that is purty yarn!!

Swift?

Thanks everyone!

Mamathree this is a swift. You put a hank of yarn around it, and then attach the end of the yarn to a ball winder. The swift spins and keeps the hank from tangling as you wind.

Thanks. Learn something new every day. BTW the yarn is beautiful. I hope you will post your finished project for us.
