Yarn swift

Captain's Log, Stardate 07.08.2008

I have the best husband in the world. I don’t care what you say about yours, mine is the best.

I saw this article for how to make your own yarn swift (a lot cheaper than buying an umbrella swift at $70 a pop).

I emailed the url to Captain Caffeine and asked him to make me one. He did it this past weekend! Isn’t he wonderful?

Naturally, our intelligence-challenged dog had to lay out in the sun even though it was 80 degrees.

After which she came inside the house to cool off.


  1. I am so jealous of your home made swift! Your hubby did a fantastic job on it. Can you send me the link? I want to see if my dad would be willing to make me one when he's home from the hospital and feeling better (he's having his last chemo treatment).

  2. What a sweetie! By the way, I LOVE your new cover.

  3. That is AWESOME! Camy, your husband is indeed terrific!

  4. Thanks guys!

    Shelley, here's the link:

    Tina, sorry, didn't mean to deceive you, but the book in the pic of the yarn swift is Shelley Adina's YA novel, IT'S ALL ABOUT US.


  5. No arguments here! That's pretty amazing. What an awesome hubby!
