I just added some Indian textiles to my shop (mirrored dupatta and beaded scarf).

I started knitting again!

I have gotten a few massages and the therapist basically ripped my head off and put it back on. She said "meghan, your head is screwed on right, just a bit too tight."
So I am knitting again, relaxing my shoulders and neck, and not over-doing it....but so far so good and no more twingy wrist!

yay!

(I am baking brownies to celebrate)

Love the lion!  Pretty fabrics too.  Smiley

I need to see your therapist.  My arm is killing me from too much knitting and computer work.  Ack!

Oh, those are really neat. How do you use them, do you spin the curved part around once the pin is inserted? Are they silver? I like the bend and hammeriness, very groovy.

Thank you, CLM and L2E!  Smiley

They are aluminum which should stay shiny and not tarnish.  Smiley   The pin part moves along the wire (and can flip around the wire too) and once you have inserted the pin into the shawl you can move it along the wire and then catch it on the bend.  I don't think I'm explaining it very well.  I'll try to take a photo so you can see what I mean.  Smiley

Ok, here are some pics on how to use the pin. 
1 - rotate the pin to the center
2 - insert pin into shawl to catch both layers of fabric
3 - rotate pin along brooch and catch the pin on top of opposite side to secure

Hope that explains it better.  Smiley
