New Toys!

Yesterday one of my Christmas presents was delivered. My first sewing machine!

Once the upstairs windows are framed, I'm going to make curtains.

Today I finally bought a yarn swift. I've been wanting to get one since I got my ball winder. I'm hoping it'll make using the winder easier.

I have 6 skeins of Cascade 220 to ball up and I didn't want to have to fight with the winder. This swift is just a plastic one. I'll use it until it breaks and then I'll buy a good wooden one.

I just ordered the same swift. I saw two different people comment that they preferred this swift over a wood one even if it could/would eventually break.

My hope is that with gentle use it will last a long time and that if it eventually does break, my DH can invent a repair!

I actually hope it lasts a long time too. I just like wood better then plastic. One of the LYS had one like this and it got destroyed. I think the key is, as you say, gentle use.
