I enjoy winding the yarn by hand. I pulled the Lowes table leg trick to make my nostepinne; you can find them near the dowels. Although I am currently working on a motorized ball winder I am building out of a Lego robotics kit for the fun of it.
I bought my swift from Hornshaw Wood Works
this swift is absolutely amazing, easily 14 millions time more wonderful than it appears in the pictures (slight exaggeration
) it even comes with a 5th peg in case you loose one or if you spin your own yarn you can wind your own hanks. I just bought it recently and even thought I don’t have any hanks around just now I still pull it out every once in a while just to give it a spin. :D New toys, right. :D
