faux swift is still speedy

lamp shade swiftswift and ball winderThere’s a discussion on the knittyboards about swifts and winders, so I wanted to share my half-rigged set up.  Our lampshade works marvelously. Just loosen the cap that secures the shade and round and round she goes.

I wound 1375 yards of Merino Oro with it last night!
