Hello! I have been reading and lurking on crafster for some time now. I've decided
to come out and share with fellow knitters!
Several months ago, I made my own tabletop yarn swift out of everyday garage
items -- a drill was the only power tool!
Anyhow, I finally
started a blog and have posted the instructions of my homemade
swift. I hope you make one too! My swift is portable and I've even brought it several times
at my knitting group meetings for others to use.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~** EDIT/ UPDATE: **
I have a couple of different ways of doing it in a new tutorial on my blog now. Here's the link: http://www.craftydiversions.com/patterns/homemade_yarn_swift.htm
ALSO, I just entered an Etsy/Instructables contest and thus, I put up the yarn swift in a tutorial on Instructables. Here's that link: http://www.instructables.com/id/ECNWGNBF46DD9H4/
