HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY (YARN SWIFT OMG)
I actually jumped up and down Sunday night when the auction closed (ebay) and after waiting almost 2 years I think ? and not being able to decide where to buy from I just DID IT and GOT IT.

My DH told me to play the ebay game and wait til the last minute which I don't really like to do but I noticed these Glimakra swifts did go for quite a difference in price and I waited til the last 10 minutes and got it (OH I WANTED A GLIMAKRA SO BAD!)
for $51. Plus shipping $13 but still a lot better than some stores.

I CAN'T WAIT TIL IT ARRIVES!!!!!!

Great deal! The excitement of an auction is so much fun.

For future reference for anyone else interested in a Glimakra (they're awesome!) , 59.99 and free shipping

Well geez! I can't help it if my goal in knitting business is to be somewhat altruistic! That swift just so rocks ...I couldn't mark it up as much as some places.

I'm sure you could sell the metal swift on ebay or some such venue

Please allow me to show my stupidity. What is a "swift", and what is it used for?

I'm a not-so-experienced knitter, so some of the things that are talked about here I don't have a clue of - but figure asking is the best way to learn.
