A NIFTY YARN SWIFT

I’m all about recycling when we can.  Yarn swifts are typically pretty expensive.  Try this one out!  You can make it easily with items you already have on hand.

    I just made this and it works BEAUTIFULLY! The only change I made was to use a larger ceramic coffee mug instead of the mailing box. It works so well and is total vindication for my craft supply pack rat tendencies. LOVE IT!!!

    How do I get the directions how to make this swift & is it compatible with the typical ball winder?

    Sheila,
    There’s a link to the blog with directions on it. Don’t know about its compatibility with a typical yarn swift – but definitely worth a try.
