Look what I got for my birthday!
In case you don’t know what it is…and I have to admit, I kind of knew but had to google it to confirm…it’s an umbrella swift. It is for helping wind skeins of wool into nice neat balls ready for knitting. Brilliant. No more using my feet then!
Thank you very much to my lovely brother, sister-in-law and two fab nephews in Ireland. I do love a knitting contraption.
Now I just have to go and buy some lovely expensive skeins of wool to try it out!
