  1. Is it an expandable/collapsable clothes-line (to dry/hang clothes on)?

  2. Some sort of indoor clothesline/airer?!

  3. is this a gadget to wind yarns.....

  4. I am going crazy!! I know I know what this is, but I can't pinpoint it--Bummer!!

  5. Its a yarn swift! I just read about one of these the other day!


  6. I don't know it's official name but it would be something like a skein winder, or skein holder. My mum has an orange one that she uses for all her handspun wool. She still has the original case and I can almost picture the label on the side!

  7. I would have said a clothes line thingy but I guess it's been said, so.... umbrella? collapsible table base? ;) K

  8. I was thinking some kind of clothesline, Or something to do with yarn. Could it be a blocker or something of the sort?

  9. The correct guess has already been made, but what the heck. It's a yarn swift, and I've been wanting one for ages for the whole "winding skeins into balls" thing. My impatient knitting boyfriend decided to try winding a ball of alpaca with a drill, and it didn't work very well.


  10. Yarn swift it is. Handy thing too. My sister has a lovely wooden one. I just visit her when I have skeins to ball.
