A ball winder and a swift

Gotta love it! My mother gave me one of each and I'm loving it! I used them to make balls out of my Cascade Sierra for the I Do Shrug from the latest edition of Knitty. It took a little getting used to, but I got some fab looking yarn balls! I'm also trucking along on the new edition of the Mother's day project. I'm hoping I have enough yarn to get the thing finished. I'd take a picture but it's a lot of stockinette in the round right now. Very boring. I've got a meeting at DS's preschool tonight, so not much is going to get accomplished knitting wise, but it is an opportinity to be out in public without the kidlets.

Oooh, I'm jealous. I've been wanting both a ball winder and a swift for a while. Maybe I'll do a subtle hint for Mother's Day.

I'm thinking of asking for a swift and winder for my birthday.....you really think they're usefull? I almost NEVER buy yarn in hanks, so it would be more for dealing with dyed yarn and rewinding skeins............

I actually just ordered a winder and a swift and can't wait to get it. I too thought I wouldn't use it until I realize half the yarn in my stash was hanks and i didn't even realize it.
