LOOK - Pop-A-Bobbin Alert!!!!!!!!!

Well I'm feeling very pleased with myself and a little smug - I think I'm the first to post about the Pop-A-Bobbins from Sally's "Him in the Garage".

I got mine on Friday and have been playing with it a little since then. As you are all aware I'm sure I LOVE Aero Englands and it will take a lot to beat them in my eyes but this just may do it! It is a really great shuttle - light with a good "feel". I have a Silent Tatter too which I like the feel of but find just too heavy as I keep dropping it - the Pop-A-Bobbin does not have this dropsy effect as it is much lighter. My only tiny criticism (which I have relayed to Sally & Jane already) is that the hook is not a proper crochet hook and I'm finding that a bit awkward but I'm sure that I'll get used to it. Here are a few piccies of the wonderful new addition!

Now all I need is another one to keep it company!

I can't wait for mine to arrive - it has to come all the way to Australia!Hmmm, another one to keep it company - a matching set, what a good idea! But 'im in the garage has to fill all the first wish-lists before he can make us more!

Thank you for your wonderful remarks and yes, you are the first with a report. I felt the same as you about the hook at first but I soon got used to using it. Like the Aero it doesn't take the small size 11 beads but there again I expect miracles!!! They are very light to use, and are beautifully made, aren't they?
