Make a Swift - Swiftly!

Have your own swift? A friend showed off the coolest swift that fits compactly into a little travel case. She had received the homemade swift as a Christmas gift last year and her father had found the plans to make the swift online.

So I did a bit of digging online and found a few sites that offered plans to build a swift. I carefully printed out the plans that looked the best, presented them to my husband, and said "This is what I want for my birthday." Well, my birthday came and I received a beautifully made swift. Now, if you must know, my husband didn't make it. He ran out of time and he said the tools required were packed away in the storage shed. But he found the swift on and I'm the lucky recipient of a nice birthday gift. I have to say, I've used it a lot already, and find it so handy.

For those of you who are interested in making a swift, the site that had wonderful directions and a great looking swift (pictured above) was The link to the pdf file with pictures and construction instructions is here:
(And for those who don't care to make their own swift, there is a link there to purchase one on etsy)
