project #8 - measure up

magnetic pig

pattern used -
yarn used -
  • assorted reclaimed yarns
hook used -
  • 2.5mm steel
thoughts -
  • these are supposed to have a circular tape measure inside... but I didn't have any in the house
  • I found some large, strong, circular magnets... which were just the right size
  • they make a perfect pin keeper... or pin 'pick-up'
magnetic ladybug

pins

there was a bonus pattern for butterfly, too...

They're very cute :-) Clever idea to use a magnet - I'm always dropping pins!
