The Knitting Carpenter

Mr. Cool has been tricking out my knitting studio! This is his handcrafted version of a swift--a tool used to help me wind center-pull balls of yarn by hand. It works great, and much better than any previous technique I had.

The swift wasn't the end of his knitting carpentry--he followed it up with a pom tree! (He even let me paint it pink!) I haven't had a chance to use this yet, but I know it will work brilliantly, and then I can add pom poms to everything!

What should I have him craft next?

Great Job on the swift.

I didn't even know there was such a thing as a pom-tree.

Hubby is making me a similar swift perhaps a pom-tree is in order also.
