I’ve just discovered Portuguese knitting. I tried the yarn round the neck to begin with, then bought some inexpensive knitting pins that are like a safety pin.
This, however is altogether much better. It’s a good weight, with a strong magnet, the hook at the bottom holds yarn much better than the smaller pin. And it’s very pretty.
Being larger and more obvious I’m less likely to forget it’s there when I go to do something else. But if I did it would look like a brooch rather than a random safety pin in my jumper!
It also makes the knitting process easier - the yarn slips through the loop easily and the extra weight makes it easier to maintain a good tension.
Price was good compared to a lot of American ones too - and a British company, yay!
Good service, arrived within a few days, with no postage costs. Donation to Breast Cancer Care included.
A pleasure doing business, I shall be ordering more. Thank you.
