A view of and through the swift
This is a picture of me taken through a swift. For my non-yarnite readers, a swift is a very handy implement, especially when combined with a ball winder. (Note: all your yarn friends want one if they don't already have one; run, don't walk, to the nearest yarn store and buy one -- winder or swift or even better: both -- for them immediately and give it to them at the first gift giving occasion in their future, like Easter, for example.) A swift + ball winder = yummy yarn cakes whereby the yarn can be pulled easily from the centre thus increasing the enjoyment and productivity of knitting.
I like to sit under the swift when Mrs. Peeps winds her yarn, even if it means I sustain the occasional twack in the head. I can't explain it. Perhaps it is because she is spending so much time with her swift...maybe I am jealous!
