The Tall Guy had a package come in yesterday and it was a belated V-day gift for me. I haven't used it yet, but now I am the proud owner of a yarn swift!!! I can now set up my hanks of yarn by putting them on the swift and then spinning it into a ball using my ball winder (last year's birthday gift).
Here's a photo of the swift (from Joann.com, where it came from, saved to my server)
I think there's a reason why I'm keepin' this guy. Most dudes go for flowers or candy (I did get candy too), but this one, he knows the way to my heart is through fibery means. :)
Here's the ballwinder from last year...
I don't have photos of the new toy in action, as I opened it, squeeeda bit and then packaged it back up. With t-minus 9 days to moving, I practiced self restraint and simply packed it up with everything else. Sigh.
