after spending an hour winding 600 yards of lace weight Zephyr off a cone and into a hank so that I can dye it, and thinking that, once it is dyed it will have to be wound out of that hank and into a ball before I can knit with it. I decided I so need a swift.

I may hit the hardware store and put myself together one. now I have to decide what kind I want… and how much I am willing to spend in the making.
