Want to see the swift in action? I had some inquiries as to how it actually worked… so here it is!
Gently untwist it into a large circle:
Attach your swift to a stable surface (I used a heavy book shelf, so it wouldn’t budge)
Expand your swift, but not all the way:
Lift your yarn and put it around the swift, making sure not to get it hooked on the edges. No tangles!
Start making a ball:
Keep rolling, and voila! You’ve got yourself a ball of yarn!
And that’s my swift!
Thanks for the demo! I have never gotten yarn that way, so I could not imagine the hows and whys of a swift.
