I have a swift!

I recently bought a swift off a lady on TNN whose father makes them. Now a swift for those who don’t know is a handy dandy contraption that you put your hank of wool on and then you are able to wind the wool up by yourself with a wool winder. It used to be that I either got my hubby to hold the hank with his arms while I wound the winder or I would hand wind the wool into a ball (using an upside down dining room chairfor the hank) and then put the ball into the clothes basket and then wind it into a ball with the wool winder! Very time consuming and a bit fiddly.

Here is what the swift looks like with a hank of Smoke from The Wool Company on it.
