Swift

Open swift
Yarn swift, that is! My very thoughtful brother-in-law made this for me! He's quite talented at building things, and my twin needed a yarn swift — an item not so easily obtained reasonably in France, where they live. While he was making one for her, he very kindly made one for me, too! With my ball winder, this will make transforming skeins of yarn into balls so easy, and I'm absolutely delighted with it. Sadly, I don't have any skeins sitting around right at the moment, but I should have some soon.

What's especially nice about this swift is that, by means of a couple of wing nuts, the whole thing collapses for storage. I'm going to need to make a bag to keep it tidy and safe, but I'll do so very soon. At the right, you can see what it looks like when it's ready to put away. Pretty cool, isn't it? :)
