best thing $5(aud) can get you: part 1
a tailoring thimble - $3.50 - makes the best ring. Obviously it differs from a standard thimble in that it doesn't have the top head part. You're meant to wear it on the tip of your finger but I discovered if you get one 3 sizes bigger, you can wear it as a ring. I had this idea that I could get 10, one for each finger and thumb but I know that the man that owns Harvey's Tailoring supplies in Melbourne is very traditional and would probably start asking questions that I can't be bothered justifying, so not sure how to go about it yet.
