Here is the Swift my dh made me...
My dh made this Swift for me. He looked at a bunch online then figured out how to do it. Now I'm just waiting on the Ball Winder to arrive via the mail.

That's great! Kinda funny, because my dh just made me a swift this weekend, too! It's currently at my MIL's, though, getting prettied (she does one-stroke painting). It's a different design, too. The design of yours is very clever, I like it Isn't it nice to have a handy husband?
