knit pins

back at the dawn of time, had picked up several different packages of sculpy, in different colors to make who knows what.  Then I figured it would work for making shawl and knit pins.

IMG_0939some of these are pins that have broken, or just don’t get worn anymore because my lifestyle has changed. Some are buttons, some are formerly clip earrings!  I don’t know if they are really stiff enough to be closures on some designs, but they are a way to wear decoration on a knit that will be a little better than using a pin.

and for the record, I also have some silver hair pieces that I use on heavy sweaters as closures as well as old celtic design pins.

Guess I have to keep knitting
