My New Wind-Up Toy

My new ball winder and my first wound ball. I am so proud!

I don't have a swift, so I just looped the yarn over the back of a chair. I had to go slow, but it worked. I'm contemplating buying a swift. Joann's has a 40% off coupon right now. It may be worth it.

    There are folks who say they really enjoy winding balls by hand.

    I'm not one of them. Congrats on the ballwinder!

    Yeah for the wind up toys! I too just got my winder on Saturday. I've been playing already. I'm eyeing the swift as well. . . .
