When I read this post, I remembered seeing an article in one of my Vogue Knitting mags, so I just searched and pulled up this page with a whole slew of pics of all kinds of different ones. I enjoyed looking at these.
One of these was made similar to metal bookmark I have with beads on one end and other ends is crooked. It would only take a "bending" in the right place to turn into one of these. The magnetc one in purple looks interesting as well. It's round in shape, looks like a button, and another has 3 purple stones set in silver.
And all the women who were wise of heart spun with their hands, and they kept bringing as yarn the blue thread and the wool dyed reddish purple, the coccus scarlet material and the fine linen. Ex. 35:25
I tried this and it works yay😊
Hey that's great. That metal bookmark I had purchased some time ago from Pier One Imports on sale. It somehow ended up in my car glove compartment. I always thought this thing could be useful some day! It's perfect because it already has the crook in it.
I am just trying to learn how to Portugese knit and I thought I might try and make a knitting pin out of a paper clip. If that does not work I guess I will be sock shopping.
GREAT IDEA I WILL TRY IT
