Good Morning all! I finally ordered my Royal yarn winder from Herrschners. When I checked this morning it was in NORTHBROOK, IL, US - has been there for a couple days. :pout:
We have decided to make a swift out of PVC pipe and elbows.. lol I know, it sounds strange. But I found a picture of one and it looks like it will work great! my problem is the dimensions... could someone tell me how long a typical hank of yarn is? I will try an attach a picture of the swift we want to make. Any and all input is appreciated! :hug:
Happy Easter!

Thanks! :hug: There is a swift online that accomodates a range from 29 inches to 72 inches. so if I cut the pipes 12 inches each with the adjustible elbows that should work (maybe?) lol.

Thanks again!

I found directions from Crafty Diversion on Ravelry (if your a member) she has a store there that you cna buy directions for 3 different swifts that are made for wood and costs about $20. Her directions are $1.99 and that gets you all 3 sets of directions.
