New Video! How To Use a Ball Winder & Swift


In today's tutorial we'll be exploring how to use a ball winder and a swift.  Have you ever gotten yarn that looks like this?


While gorgeous and fun to look at, it needs to be wound into a ball or yarn cake before actually using it.  Using a ball winder and swift, you can transform your skein into a neat little (center-pull) yarn cake as seen below:



Alternatively, you can use the swift (or friend or chair) to hold the yarn while you wind it by hand too.  The video below will walk you step by step on how to use these handy tools!


Ready to get one of your own?  In the video I used the Knit Picks Umbrella Swift and the Knit Picks Ball Winder...love them!  Click below for more info:
