Before and After

Shawl pin blanks waiting to be hammered and polished for a wholesale order:

...then after, when they are ready to be labelled, bagged and boxed:

Whew!

In other news, the mohair is in time out. We aren't speaking to each other right now. ;)

And now...back to work.

Oy. This looks like a load of work - but a very satisfying one, I'd say!

Time out from an uncooperative WIP is always good!

The pins are amazing! I'm sure the mohair will realize the error of it's ways soon enough.

Rosemary-I would have a hard time finding a shawl worthy of such gorgeous pins. I like the silver and the copper.

I hope you and your mohair come to an understanding.

Looks like a lot of work but I bet it is fun work! I will have to buy a pin of yours when I get some extra money. I think they are very pretty.

Love those pictures! One of those charming copper figure 8s is on its way to me via one of your retailers.

I hope the mohair is learning its lesson.

Those are beautiful shawl pins! I don't know how to use one, but then, it will probably be another decade before I finish my first shawl. Sorry about the mohair. I find a good timeout works wonders in bringing unruly yarn under control.

I agree that this looks like a lot of work! And, bad mohair -- BAD, mohair!

Talk about making order from chaos! Holy moly! I think you will be the KIC (Knitter In Charge) when you get back to that bad mohair!

Wow! That's a lot of shawl pins. The little I can see of them looks very very pretty. I imagine the bagging and boxing and whatnot might be a bit tedious. Or is that a kind of fun part? Or better yet, something you can delegate to the young men in the family? May one ask where they're headed? You know, in case one was pondering something...

You can easily catch up to me on Peacock -- I had to rip back to my lifeline! I'm finally back to row 205...maybe we'll finish at the same time. Gee, I love your pins.

Bad, mohair, bad!

Mohair frequently needs timeouts. I think it's genetic.

Time out is just what you needed! Those shawl pins are beautiful.

I just ripped back a bunch of mohair on a shawl....I feel your pain.

That looks like a huge order! I love the curve that you put in your pieces. Very nice!
