Magnetic Knitting Pins
I just received another shipment with beautiful knitting pins. They are made with silver or brass, nice size, very strong magnet. Just perfect for what I teach! Actually the magnet is so strong that we have to be careful about two things:
1) Never use a magnet if you have a pacemaker
2) If you use one of my pins to knit Portuguese Style, make sure you open it by sliding the two magnets apart instead of pulling it. Many lost the beautiful back that they have as a finish because this part is just glued to the magnet. I can always replace the broken piece, but I have a 50% chance of sending you the back part that does not fit into your magnet... Does that make sense? I need to guess what side your magnet is glued to the pin.
Anyway, for those of you that cannot wear a magnet, I have a beautiful selection of necklaces on my Etsy shop Andrea Wong Knits. And, of course, the common Portuguese Knitting pin made of steel is the thrird option.
If you have any suggestions or ideas or your own, or if you want me to sell your pins in my shop, please email me.
