Ode to my Yarn Winder

I am on a winding binge. I can’t stop. And I’m considering buying or making myself a swift. Yarn winders are a gateway tool.

I couldn’t resist putting my little yarn cakes on a dessert tray. Forgive me.

    I love my swift and ball winder, more than is proper, probably.

  2. A friendly warning…you’re on a slippery slope. First you’ll want a swift. Then it’s a scale (to weigh how much of the cake is left when you’re done with a project) and then you need a yarn meter, because of course you’ve lost the ballband and the amount of yarn is different anyway…. :devil:

  3. OH! I love those kind of calorie- and fat- free cakes. Yum yum! It’s good to see you blogging and getting excited about knitting again. Welcome back!

    P.S. Eve, I’m having my first blog giveaway at Salihan.com. Drop in if you get the chance. ^__^

  4. I remember doing something VERY similar when I got my yarn winder.. I unfortunately don’t have any fancy cake display plates.. but hey.. the feeling was the same..

    hmm.. I would pop over to knit picks and get that swift and scale.. ya know free shipping after $50 and I just got the scale it’s nice it even comes WITH batteries!
    I got a vintage swift but am thinking a new wooden one will be in order.. sigh..

    oh but you can make a swift with your office chair…
