I went for a little stroll around Kings Heath today to take advantage of the sunshine. On my way back home I walked up the High Street from Highbury Park.
I went into the British Heart Foundation shop as I’d seen some terracotta saucers in the window and thought they might make good plant pot holders for the kitchen windowsill. I then saw a box…
That when opened, had real treasure inside.
What I had found was a compact wool swift or umbrella. Here’s the instructions
The collapsable arms that hold the skein.
And here it is all set up.
Holding a skein of wool ready to wind by hand or with a wool winder.
Not bad for £2.75
