Thanks for this idea and for sharing. I have been looking for months for this pin; and even popular places like Michaels store (in Canada) - the manager there told me that she does not know about Portuguese knitting or this pin. I was quite disappointed, as my knitting had to be put on hold as a result of the pains caused by my carpel tunnel cramps. God's willing, I will be able to make a pair so that I can start doing Andrea Wong's type of knitting; it should give me a definite ease. Now I will be able to get my Christmas knitting going. One thing: would u be able to tell me where I could get the Lobster Clasps? I think I will be able to get the bulb pins, and if I can't, I could substitute with large safety pins, am sure. Once again, thanks for sharing.
