So my gal is a knitter. A condition that I am certain many of you are familiar with. As it was getting closer to Christmas and I was discussing and planning things that I was going to make for OTHER people, she came across this video http://www.woodworkingformeremortals.com/2011/08/make-your-own-yarn-swift.html and decided that I needed to make her one of these. It turned out alright and I am looking forward to seeing her utilize it. I am also looking forward to seeing the epoxy NOT fail. I have never used epoxy before and I am hoping that it is stronger than my confidence concerning adhesives I’m not that familiar with. Also, I think at some point soon I am going to route out a couple pockets for the dowels to hide away in when it is folded up.

-- If I could just get this whole "Time/Money" problem figured out...

Made one of these for my wife who is also a knitting fanatic. She’s gotten a lot of use out of it so far. Good luck with yours – it looks great.
