FYI: A lot of us long for the large wooden swift that makes HANKS of yarn into CAKES of yarn 'in a minute' instead of an hour or more!

Joann's (.com) has the lrg wooden swift on sale from $82 to $49...just in case you've been waiting for a good sale to come along!

Another gadget that expedites the transformation of HANKS into CAKES is the BALL WINDER by KnitPicks (http://www.knitpicks.com/Knitting+Yarn+Ball+Winder_AD80583.html). The SWIFT holds the yank for you, the ball winder creates the CAKE for you. They work together.

It takes 20 minutes to convert 10 yanks into 10 cakes.
