The Swift

Last week I was using my yarn swift and was thinking about how I loved it so but never talked about it on the blog. So it's time to share! :)

A few months back I hit up Twitter and told the Twitter knitters I was looking for a new yarn swift. I received a suggestion to look into Hornshaw Wood Works. The swifts cost more than what I have spent in the past so at first I wasn't sure if I wanted one. But then I started thinking about it. I have long been fighting with my inexpensive swifts. Whether it was a table-top or umbrella swift, after awhile things start to breakdown. It was why I was in the market again for yet another one. Sometimes it's better to spend a little more if it's going to last, you know? Hornshaw had good reviews so I went for it.
And I'm so glad I did. I have been using this swift for months now with absolutely no problems. Winding yarn used to mean me stringing together every expletive I know in various combinations.  I actually like winding my yarn now!

The one I purchased is the Padauk yarn swift. I love the color! I also purchased the swift bag to keep everything together. I really like how the swift folds flat with the handmade screw to keep it in place.
It comes with the adjustable pegs so your yarn will fit on it just right.
It's so easy to set up you'll be winding in no time! Action shot:
I'm glad I finally have a swift that I know I will be able to use for years and years to come!
