4KCBWDAY6: A Tool To Covet

4KCBWDAY6 – A Tool To Covet Write about your favourite knitting or crochet (or spinning, etc) tool. It can either be a tool directly involved in your craft (knitting needles or crochet hook) or something that makes your craft more pleasurable – be it a special lamp, or stitch markers.

I have one item in my knitting arsenal above all others that I cherish (well, if we discount my hands, which I am going to take as given, as you don’t want a post about my hands… I think) and that is my swift.

It is a relatively new item in my knitting cupboard and was extra special because it was a gift from the one that I love. But its not only for its sentimental value that I love this swift.

The sturdiness of good workmanship shines through every element of its construction, and above all of my other knitting and crochet tools I can see this one working flawlessly in 60 years time. It’s good, honest workmanship at its finest, and though its not the cheapest of knitting items it is absolutely worth every penny, and would make a great gift for any knitter or crocheter who admires all elements of their craft.

Though today’s post is short, please keep watching this blog as I have a new pattern to release today and though it will be a paid for pattern I will be offering it for free to everyone who has taken part in Knitting & Crochet Blog Week this year.

  1. I love that swift. I have a broken shaft on my umbrella swift, so it works for now, but I am sure I will need to replace it some day. I will be looking out for one similar to yours. It is lovely.

  2. I had never seen a swift like that before until I visited a link on the blog of a fellow Knit & Crochet Blog Week participant, Dahle of The Gauge Wars –

    – where it was described as “the Amish kind”.

    Thank you for the Blog Week concept as I have learned a lot from following the posts and I intend to continue browsing through them in the weeks to come.
