I have been looking for a good board to block my sweater (yes I know I haven't even finished it yet) - but I am a shop-a-holic and love finding things - the more "stuff" I have relating to knitting, the happier I am! .... anyway, I found a great one - it's on this site:
it was costly, but I think it'll be the only one I'll ever have to buy - and it folds up!
I also found some cool tools called Knit Klips (I don't like when people use a "k" instead of the "c" in words just to be clever... (or should I say "klever") ick! :)
BUT the clips are cool! here's the site:
which are kind of like hair clips - they are used to attach pieces together and hold them in place (the same way a clothespin would) - as you are attaching the pieces. I ordered some of these as well (after looking at Wal Mart in the hair aisle at little hair clips and deciding they wouldn't work, and figuring out that clothespins are big and not very strong) - I'm waiting to get them -
I am a spending fiend! let's hope it all works out and is worth the investments!
