I usually knit. Yes, even if it's detoxing from knitting, I will just knit something else. so it is no wonder I have about 5 or 6 or more projects going at once.
I have plans to make a shawl for my mom, probably for her birthday. And after seeing the last lace item (a lace worsted weight scarf) tied in a knot at christmas, I decided to include a shawl pin with the shawl.
I have been looking for a decently priced shawl pin, and haven't found one that I want to pay the asking price, for my mother (she doesn't appreciate some of these things the way I do). I did find one in someone's etsy store. I decided I was just as capable, and could make the same pin... here it is
It's probably not quite as cute as the original... do you want to see the original? Not quite the same but close.
I also tried to make one for me, but I broke it while attempting to attach the beads.
I think I will have to go back and get another pin and continue on where I left off.
However I did salvage some of my efforts into stitch markers.
I really like them. I think I will either keep them, or maybe if I get involved in a st. patrick's day stash swap.... they may go towards that.
