I've had a ball winder for a while but no swift. I was worried that the yarn may still get tangled with a swift. Priority post to Australia is expensive so it took me a while to convince myself I needed one.
Let me tell you it is worth every single penny - it is just amazing. So simple and quick to use. The yarn effortlessly came off the swift onto the ball winder. Perfect!
This is so quick and easy to set up and use. Of course watching Jeannie's video helped a lot. It's simple to use and using it with the ball winder makes it a dream to get my yarn ready for knitting. Less time getting the yarn ready means more time for knitting.
