this is the kind of swift i want. i haven't used my ballwinder i got last year because i'm waiting for a swift. my dh is handy and i would love to have him sort of participate in my hobby and make me one like this. he can whip stuff like this. heck, it could be something to make $ too. i'm glad to hear you like this style as no one around here has that kind so i can really try one out.
