The Twice Sheared Sheep
I love things that have dual purposes. I also love beautiful things. Perhaps that is why I love Twice Sheared Sheep's new shawl pins! Her heavy wire pins double as stitch marker holders (and who wouldn't want to display her infinity stitch markers?).
Dawn has been busy creating all sorts of wire shapes (check out the shawn the sheep ones!) for her pins. They might just be the perfect touch to top off your shawl! Speaking of shawls... some of you may have noticed I am on a huge shawl kick lately. I just can't stop knitting them! Shawls could just be the most perfect accessory ever invented. Feminine, functional, looks good on every body type, and I doubt anyone would mistake your knitted or crocheted shawl for some mass-produced big-box garment. My personal goal for the Ravelympics is to spin 8 oz of fiber and then knit that yarn into a shawl- if you're looking for a group to join, check out the Team Phat! Whew, I think I have convinced myself I am in desperate need for one of Dawn's shawl pins.
We're giving away this shiny copper shawl pin and stitch markers to a lucky commenter. Just visit Twice Sheared Sheep, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner this weekend, so be sure and twitter, facebook, plurk or blog about your favorites!
Thank you Dawn, for creating this lovlies for us to enjoy!
