KNIT IT - HOOK IT - CRAFT IT
Lace Pins - in packs of approximately 200
Whether you are a knitter, crocheter or sewer, you will love these pins. They may be thin and squat but they are extremely sturdy and versatile!
If like me, you are a firm believer in blocking your work, you know the importance of using the right pins to block with.
I have tried many pins of late and think that the three options available through KNIT IT - HOOK IT - CRAFT IT are as good as it gets. Here you can see the Lace Pins but I also have Entomology Pins and Toilet Pins (nicer than they sound) available so please look at the other listings to see what suits your requirements.
I recently used these pins to block a sock weight shawlette and they were perfect. With 200 in the tube I used over half the tube of pins. For pins that won't bend, are just right for the job and have 200 in a tube, these are good value.
Using the Lace Pins
These pins are small but perfectly formed and thin enough to be ideal for blocking anything below an aran weight yarn. If you check the photos you will see a white, 100% silk knitted sample that I blocked using these pins. No pin holes were left and there was no discolouration to the fabric.
Another benefit of these pins, is that they pull out easily because they don't have a large plastic star or flower head on them. It is easy to pull out up pin, after pin, after pin, between your two fingers and speed up the job of taking your item off the blocks.
They even come in a handy little storage tube.

Postage and Packaging
The P&P costs applied are very transparent. No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage. I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods. I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretense of 'Free P&P' with inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
