And here's what a yarn swift and ball winder does. I know you were all dying to know.
It turns the twisted hank (blue) into a neatly wound, ready to knit from ball(yellow). Well, it's not really a ball. It's more like a cake. Whatever, you get the idea!
I think the boys love my birthday gift as much as I do. They couldn't wait to try it out.
Oh, and the blue and yellow yarn are for Jonathan's stocking. That's going to be pretty!
