Not too swift, but it works...

No swift, no ball winder, no kid handy to signal a touchdown for fifteen minutes while I wound up my skein of Lorna's Laces. What to do? I found a new use for my Pilates ball:























Yes, this means the first sock is finished. I like it. It looks kind of reptilian!

That is a brilliant use of a ball. You know, I don't own a swift, and it never occured to me to use my ball like that. I find it funny that the ball I have is called a "therapy ball," which allowed my physical therapist to charge my insurance company $80 for it, and I could have went to the store and got the same "pilates" ball for about $25.

I'm going to try your method!
