i did actually look for a swift in Tilba (the alpaca shop said they catered for spinning needs) but no such luck. probably just as well, because i wouldnt have been able to contact you to ask if you wanted it :p

Thanks for looking, happyspider. I do appreciate it (and the pattern you emailed me).

I reckon I can get a friend interested in turning my concertina wine rack into a swift. He's pretty handy and loves a challenge. Also loves a bargain. His wife won't let us go op-shopping together anymore. :(

I'm very impressed with your Knitting Project List! Exactly 17 big gold stars for you. Even if you don't follow it, at least you know what you're not following ;)

Looking forward to seeing Rosie's Punishment Jumper - does it come with a little doggy bondage kit?

Taphophile said...

Lawks! 17? I didn't even count them. Another one sneaked into my office at work today, too. One of my staff needs a jumper knitted for her Kelpie. At least I have until about April to get that done.

Doggy bondage? This isn't that kind of blog. *sniff*

You know what's completely hilarious? I picked 17 out of the air, just as a big number (more than just 1 gold star) - but when I just counted your number of projects, there ARE 17! Skill - spelt L-U-C-K ;)

Not skill - spooky!
