Here are the 3 shawl pins I made the other day. I am working on perfecting how to make them. I use sanded and stained pieces of a dowel rod as the "pins" (well,except for the blue one, I haven't finished the pin for that one so I had to use a crochet hook, if I had used a DPN it'd probably work better). Now I just have to finish the 3 shawls to go with them. Hey, one shawl/ pin combo is actually for little 'ole me-- can you belive it-- I'm actually making something for myself.
