Guess what I got for myself! My yarn stash has now reached the point where hand winding the skeins is actually time consuming.
Here's an action shot of the yarn winder:
I got both the yarn winder and the swift at Joann's, where both are discounted and the shipping is free, so it was a great deal. The swift is Laci's brand and both are easy to use and as good as any in a LYS. And it leaves me more moolah for yarn, from the LYS.
