Gobin's Purple Spey
Thanks for the comment. You bring up an interesting point. You know I have never herd of Gobin or his “Purple Spey”. As I see it this as a generic pattern, and this particular combination of materials fell out of the creative ether (what ever I felt like tying at the moment with the materials I had on hand).
Good ideas have kind of an evolutionary nature sooner or later someone will come up with it, and more than likely more than one will occur independently of the others. And then again it may be advantageous to mimic a successful strategy eh.
