I am interested in getting a swift, but since it is not the sort of thing you can amble into your local Zeller's and pick up, I might have to order it. Knit Picks has one at $62.50 -- wooden, 26.5" in diameter and 26" tall. Does anyone have any experience with this particular swift? Is it a good one?
They also have a ball winder which holds up to 100 grams for $39.99 Is that a standard size? Price?
FInally they have a Yarn MEter that gives you yardage as you wind your ball through it. Anyone have it?
I would be really interested in hearing opinions about these products, pro and con. It is hard to buy from a catalogue and know what you are getting. There is a picture of it here if you want to look. http://www.knitpicks.com/Knitting_Supplies.aspx?key=swift
Thank you very much. I appreciate any advice and comments.
