Looking for Ball Winder and Swift Suggestions!

Hey everyone! I seem to have come down with a summer cold, or I have awesome allergies. If it's the latter, this will be the first time in, oh, about 10 years that I suffer from seasonal allergies. (I had a treatment done to eliminate my allergies, and I've hardly had problems since!) Anyway, I have some questions for you fine folks.
I am looking at getting a ball winder and swift. I am starting to knit with more yarns that are put up in hanks, and I think that having these tools would be useful. I know a swift would be the first of the two to get, but I am looking for suggestions for both. I don't have any knowledge on the matter, so I have no preferences in brands/materials/sizes/whatever other options these crazy things have. I would like for them to be available on amazon, as I have amassed a small fortune in amazon gift cards. But, I am not opposed to getting them elsewhere.
In short, ball winder and swift suggestions? Thanks!

  1. You can get both at The ball winder is 19.99 and swift is 64.99. These are GREAT prices! A swift is useless without a ball winder in my opinion. I paid $15 for my winder and that was with a 50% off coupon at AC Moore. My swift I got from for half price at $50. They have since found a new manufacturer who is making them for them for less so they sell them for less. Their new regular price is $64.99. Hope this helps.
