Wow what an exciting find this weekend, I collect antique wool winders, and just this weekend I found a double one! Stands about 3 ft tall , wood , with two spools. It is just great for when you are using 2 colors.. no more tangles. I think I will be using this one for sure.. Still my favorite one is one my great grandmother used for winding large skeins (made out of an old log)
It is so much fun to collect antique knitting items!!!!
I'm very happy you like collecting antique wool winders and have found a good one. Pretty sure you didn't mean for this to turn into a mean bullying attack on our Oz friend. Anyway I believe the "swift" would have evolved from some antique wool winder.
