    I was toying with getting a complete set of interchangeable circulars. You'd think I'd have them all but I constantly seem to be buying more. The ones in my price range still don't have all the quarter sizes though.

    I have a complete set of crochet hooks, I think I got it as a present some time ago.

    I have gone for the cheaper wood swift. It's more present-y than just getting supplies I think.

    i would kill for a swift :D i have a skeiner (for spinning) which stands in but isn't usually big enough to pull bought skeins tight. luckily i have Absolutely No Room for one, given the amount of use it would get.

    I was bought the knitPro interchangeables and had to give them away. I dunno if I use the needles in such a way that the cord comes undone (despite assiduous tightening) but there is not much worse than the middle coming loose and all the stitches falling off the needles. Staying with fixed circulars from now on...and I generally find 80cm is good for most things (using magic loop). I would agree that good needles are a pleasure (I have a single pair of Hiya Hiyas which I love for the pointy ends...and Addis are smooooooth.

    :D I started it in 2012! I go through long periods when I forget about it. And then there were the 2 years I thought I'd lost it...
    It's still only half done. The concentration involved is pretty intense so progress is slow.
    Watching it develop is quite exciting now though

    Well all your concentration is paying off, it really is beautiful.
    I hope we get to see it finished....sometime :D

    Thanks. I've given myself a goal of the end of 2018. Maybe a little optimistic!

    Somewhere, I have plans for a couple of home-made swifts - one using plastic coat hangers and a cardboard box and another using a revolving cake stand, 2 yard long wooden rulers and dolly pegs....so I am totally certain that someone of your huge ability could knock one up in an afternoon. Will look out the plans.

    It's one of those things... yeah you could make one, but they are only £25 (mine was) and by the time you'd been to the shops a few times for more glue and what not you'd spend that anyway.

    Well yeah, but making pretty much anything costs more than buying a mass-produced equivalent - knitting and sewing for sure. Even growing your own veggies is not really about saving money. But yep, some things are a joy to make - others less so. I have seen Wayward's stuff (talented) so I would imagine she pretty much has most things at hand...and certainly the ability to do so...but hey, who doesn't enjoy the convenience of pressing 'add to basket'?

    Not quite perfect but beat my last attempts for sure. Need to get the base less thick.
