About 1/3 of the way through pinning the shawl I ran out of pins. Bother. So I let it dry, unpinned it and put "flower head pins" on my crafty shopping list.
A few days ago when I was wandering the aisles of Michael's craft store, I stumbled upon the flower head pins.
Sidenote: Having a crafty shopping list is completely pointless for me, because upon finding the flower head pins, I realized that had I not chanced to walk down that aisle I would have walked out the of the store without even attempting to find the pins listed on my crafty shopping list.
But back to the point, I was about to grab a 100 pk when I spied something even better:
A 500 pk! After almost 15 minutes of deliberation and calculating I went with the 500 pk (it was about $6.20 after the 40% off coupon in case anyone wonders).
Today with my new trusty pins I re-blocked the shawl (FO pics soon by the way). I used exactly 150 pins. I guess I didn't really need 500. But now I can block multiple pieces if I want.
Yup, that's a lot of pins:
