For the sake of diversification, I’ve been “expanding my product line” in my Etsy store (I can’t sell physical items at Ravelry…at least I don’t think I can) by making these beautiful knitting pins used in Portuguese style knitting; the pins are very unique because I made them out of Czech glass buttons, of which are incredibly beautiful!!! If you don’t know what it is, check out this video on YouTube:
I normally knit by the method of English “throwing” (right hand does all of the work) but I prefer to use the knitting pin when I knit a knit/purl blanket because it’s very efficient, faster (I can knit about 150 stitches a minute) and doesn’t strain your hands so much. However, I have my own way of doing it; I do the purl technique the exact same way as in the video but instead of the demonstrated knit stitch, I do a continental knit stitch…someday when I’m bored, I’ll make a video of it because I haven’t seen anyone else do it.
Anyway, if you’d like to check out some unique knitting pins, please check out my shop on Etsy at: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CapeCodStitchery
Here are some of the pins that are currently available…
