Swift, Bunny, Basket and Yarn


Guess what my sister gave me for my birthday and for Christmas?  Yep..... A SWIFT-Can you believe it?  Apparently, she grew weary of my posts lamenting the absence of a swift.  How cool is that?  I am beyond thrilled and today I will be setting the swift up in my studio.

Also she stitched me up a rabbit from Posie Gets Cozy.  I love her so and her name is Stella in case you were wondering, she just looks like a Stella to me.  I'll be whipping up a little sweater once the holidays are over.

Thank you sister!!


Among other stuff, my dad and step mom gave us a basket stuffed with food and I saw a knitting basket!  I spent most of Sunday rearranging yarns upstairs and downstairs, fussing about.  I came to the realization that I have a lot of yarn.  That is a very good problem.


Lastly, here is the yarn that I bought while visiting family.  I've added the skeins to my ravelry stash.  I have plans for more socks and shawls, and cowls, and who knows what else!

  4. You are going to love having a swift! And how nice of your sister to give you a Maggie Rabbit! I made two of them last summer and love them (one I gifted to my granddaughter), but they were a lot of work. :-)

    1. a swift is a tool that clamps onto a table, opens up into an umbrella of sorts and spins. You place a hank of yarn on the umbrella area and it holds the yarn into place while you use a ball winder. The swift keeps the hank from tangles and messes!

  26. Hope you had a great birthday! (We've been modemless for a while, and I'm trying to catch up.) Your Stella bunny is so cute; almost as cute as my real Stella GD. You will LOVE the swift!
