Part of my wonderful Christmas gifts was this wooden swift hand made by my Dad! It's not only beautiful to look at, but it works wonderfully! With some Christmas money I purchased the ball winder and managed to wind 4 balls on the first try with no tangles or problems. Teenagers make wonderful winders. :-) I almost want to go re-wind everything in my stash just so it stacks so nicely but I must refrain... too many others things need doing around here.
