I don’t have a swift or a yarn ball winder. I am not really that interested in getting them either.
I have a great method that works pretty well for me.
I decided to wind my yarn for my Augustine Shawlette while I watched the Jersey Shore reunion show the other night.
This yarn is Kraemer Yarns Sterling Silk and Silver and it’s about 420 yards. It took about twenty five minutes but I was watching TV the whole time.
A couple months ago I was told that Kraemer stopped using silver in this yarn because the prices were too high. But I think I’m pretty lucky because my skein is old enough that it still has silver in it.
