A few months back I hit up Twitter and told the Twitter knitters I was looking for a new yarn swift. I received a suggestion to look into Hornshaw Wood Works. The swifts cost more than what I have spent in the past so at first I wasn't sure if I wanted one. But then I started thinking about it. I have long been fighting with my inexpensive swifts. Whether it was a table-top or umbrella swift, after awhile things start to breakdown. It was why I was in the market again for yet another one. Sometimes it's better to spend a little more if it's going to last, you know? Hornshaw had good reviews so I went for it.
The one I purchased is the Padauk yarn swift. I love the color! I also purchased the swift bag to keep everything together. I really like how the swift folds flat with the handmade screw to keep it in place.
