I realized, when I went to block my CPH back, that I had lost my box of T pins. How can someone lose a box of T pins, you ask? Easy. You pack them for your trip to Hawaii because you’re unfailingly optimistic that you’ll finish your project and need to block it while on vacation. Heh. I never claimed to be sensible, did I? Well, somehow, they either never made it home, never made it out of the suitcase, or are just hiding, as T pins are wont to do. Oh and I should add that they were never used in Hawaii.
Then I read Bonne Marie’s post about corsage pins. I must have kept it in the back of my mind. When I went to Joanne’s to get some new T pins, I found these instead. I used them right away to pin the CPH fronts. I admit that my pinning skills are not the best, as the pins are not lined up perfectly straight. Que sera sera. These pins are so shiny and bright colored; they look like Christmas bulb ornaments to me. Sometimes, it’s the simple joys that cost three bucks that can make your day. Funny how that works.
BTW, I’ve just done the last set of increases on the CPH sleeves. Got a bit more knitting to do before I start the cap shaping.
