I happened to stop by and see a friend of mine today and she was re-skeining some yarn using one of my original swifts. She let me take a quick video to show the basic operation. A few people have asked about it recently. I plan on updating my YouTube videos in the near future, but in the meantime this should give you an idea of how it works. Enjoy!
(Please don’t mind the boxes in the background. She hosts the High Fiber Diet Podcast and hosts a knitting retreat each fall here in West Michigan. And those are the boxes of stuff that will be going with her to the retreat this year…in just a couple of weeks! Check out here Ravelry group for more info on the “Knittin’ in the Mitten” retreat.)
