I got one of those wooden tabletop yarn swifts with the pegs and wondered how any of the rest of you who might have one keep it from moving around on the table top? The most logical thing would be to get some of that rubber mat stuff that comes in a roll, I guess. But I'm curious as to other suggestions the knitting genius's on these forums might come up with? I don't have many places to set the swift, except for a regular-sized wooden TV tray, which limits me a bit space-wise if using both the swift and a ball winder at the same time. Plus using such a small surface to set the swift on doesn't give me much "wiggle room".
In the beginning, I wrapped rubber bands around the bottom ends (the ends of the cross pieces that form the "stand") and that worked well for me. When the rubber bands finally broke from age, I did replace them with the stuff you mention, as I had scraps of that on hand; actually, I think mine was from a cut-to-fit, non-slip rug pad. I just cut 4 squares and glued them onto the bottom of my swift.
