Crocheters need new toys too!

I have been crocheting for just over a year now.  I have worked with all sorts of yarn and made a number of different patterns…from scarves to amigurumi! But it was only recently that I was introduced to the beauty that is a yarn winder and swift! I got it in my head that after Christmas, I would go on a swift hunt…and I did! 😉

Up until recently, I wound balls of yarn onto my fingers…which didn’t necessarily lend itself to blood fl0w….

Or I simply worked from the unwound skein…

We were snowed in over Boxing Day and my mother-in-law suggested a different approach that worked!

But I still had the idea of a swift and winder in my head….

So today, we drove to Kanata, ON and I bought some new toys!!!

Now I can wind balls of yarn in minutes…PLUS they pull from the middle which makes this crocheter even MORE happy! 😉

My first wound ball of yarn!

I can’t wait to get home and organize my enormous bin of yarn!

I’m such a Capricorn!
