Kitty: A new knitting treasure

Look what came in the mail on Saturday! I finally have a swift. I have been procrastinating buying one for awhile, but when Jo Ann's sent me a 50% off coupon last week I decided it was to much to pass up. As we all know it is such a pain to roll lace weight yarn by hand.

So MG, feel free to come over at christmas time and roll away.

I did a little swatch from the yarn above.

Oh my!!!!! I can not believe how totally cool the site that Absinthe Knits just posted about for textile lovers. You have to check out Sri . It is a home decor site using traditional Japanese, Korean, and Indian textiles.

  1. Yay! New swift! Now you can wind up your yarn! Your swift looks like it is varnished which is nice... Mine is plain wood and doesn't turn without a lot of effort (so I often enlist the husband to help!). Enjoy the yarn!!!

  2. I did the exact same thing with my coupon and my swift arrived yesterday!
