No More Winding By Hand!

I got this nifty swift and ball winder (along with a lot of other cool non-knitting related stuff) for Christmas! I used to wind by hand in front of the TV, with a pack of dogs that would often spontaneously errupt in a flurry of activity causing interruptions, tangles, and all sorts of mishaps.

No more!

I'm so happy!

Lucky you, surely the handiest present any knitter could have.

The swift and ball winder are great... I have to admit, though, that the Italian Greyhound calendar caught my eye! :-)

Grace and Peace,

Excellent! Merry Christmas, Merry Winding and Happy Knitting!

Veni, vidi, kniti.

Nice!! My boyfriend got me the very same ball winder. He is a non-knitter so he was kind of clueless when he bought it. I think the swift is for my birthday in a few weeks since he made me demonstrate how it works this morning (good thing I had some unwound yarn on hand) and he asked why I used the back of a chair to hold the yarn.

Congrats. I love my swift. I don't have a ball winder yet. Maybe some day.

I bought a swift and a ballwinder last year, well, slightly over a year ago now. The swift gets used a lot; I haven't unpacked the ball winder yet. I'm sure I'll use it someday....but the swift is fantastic!
