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!
LARGE WOODEN SWIFT
Another gadget that expedites the transformation of HANKS into CAKES is the BALL WINDER by KnitPicks
. 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.
From a HANK
To a CAKE
A 'cake' can be knit from the 'center pull' end!
