This is what I need. Neat little center pull yarn cakes. Yes, this one is not so neat because it has been played with and is behaving like a redheaded stepchild. It is beautiful so I will overlook that small detail. Enter the swift. You unfurl those long hanks onto the swift and feed it into a ball winder to make nice little cakes. It goes very quick with a swift and looks darn fun! Yes, I could learn to make center pull balls. Well, no I probably can't. I have tried. Picture me in a tangle of yarn swearing like a truck driver, or at least the sailor that I was. That was BEFORE I had a baby. So yes I need one of these. Hubby was beaten into submission and the swift was ordered on Mother's Day. I had to pull a little five year old behavior. You know what I mean. This is what I want and I want it now. Well, I didn't phrase it quite like that but you get the point. This concludes your education on swifties.
