Still here, back from a week of cat sitting. The cat loved my lap and I got a lot less knitting done than I thought I would. Mostly because really I had plans every night that week. Like every other week really.
Cute isn’t he?
Before I left I organized my stash in boxes.I totally FOUND MORE YARN all over the place. Yarn from Smilies (that was supposed to be for the JLA scarf) Yarn a friend gave me. Yarn that I have no idea what I bought it for…So totally more yarn than i thought I had but it fit into the two boxes, and I used the third smaller one as a notions box.
Now then back to the title of this post. I got a swift from The Knit shop on Etsy for $19.99 that sadly arrived the Monday after I left to go cat sitting. So I’ve finally opened it and used it to wind some Knit Picks Swish Bulky I had lying around.
It works really well is mostly smooth, (there was a bit of an edge on some of the the dowels, but as that part never gets to the yarn it was no big deal. It also folds into a a very small easy to store size which is of the utmost importance in my rooms of diminishing space.
It came with a page of pictured instructions that were easy to follow and contact details, just incase you had further questions. All in all a great thing. That will be a god send when winding the next skein of 220 for the Lantern scarf. Which I really have to get back on. Hate is just languishing on the needl es at this point. I have a winder and a swift for $40! Woo.
