I love so many things from the 1950's, sometimes I think I was born after my time! I am amazed at some of the clever products that were available in those days, to make crocheting easier. I wish some of them were still available today.
Many times I have felt like the woman in the cartoon above, especially when I get interrupted while winding a ball. What a wonderful invention, a ball winder and swift combined!
I think I would have been quite happy crocheting the day away with these handy gadgets, but I do feel lucky to live in the age of Chibis, Etimos and Ravelry!
