I'm knitting nearly daily, so you'd think I'd have a nice collection of knitted items to wear. Quite the contrary. At this very moment I do not own a single knitted garment that I would want to wear. And somehow I never seem to have just the right coloured shawl or wrist warmers. Or mittens. That's why it is nice to have knitterly friends who know what colours one likes. Just like Christine, who knit me this shawl. And this pin makes the shawlette wearing easy.
As to the spiral pin, I wish I had ordered more. These would make perfect gifts. Not just for Xmas.
