Yarn Swift



I created the swift to help eliminate my wife’s yarn winding frustrations. Even though the swift appears to be simple in design it literally took me a few tries to get it right.
If you don't want to wind your hank of yarn before knitting, this wood swift can be used to make your knitting easier. Just place your hank of yarn on the swift, place it near you and begin knitting. The smooth bearings allow for a constant tension of yarn feed just perfect for knitting your items up without having to hand feed your yarn constantly. This is what swift knitting is all about. My wife loves using her swift to knit single stranded knitting objects, such as for knitting socks quickly and easily. We have received many positive comments on the swift and have even made it available for purchase in our Etsy shop.
