blocking wires - need some urgently

Hey guys,

do you know where do I get some blocking wires? I've blocked a shawl, pinning it out with needles, but it came out all wonky. I do not have the patience nor the time needed for careful blocking (baby is taking all my attention these days). And I hear it all works out much easier with blocking wires. I need a shop that ships to either Germany or Switzerland, KnitPicks unfortunately doesn't. Do you know of a shop that ships to Europe?

Thank you for your help!

  1. I don't find any in their online shop. Do they have some in stock?

  2. You should give Loop in London a call, but if they don't have any, you can get some at the hardware store--I think someone on Ravelry went and got her own made from wire there.

  3. Aš irgi ravelryje, jei neklystu, "Lace" grupėje, skaičiau, kad perka paprasčiausią nerūdijančio plieno vielą ūkinėse parduotuvėse ir puikiai viskas veikia. Pažiūrėk va čia, http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/lace-knitters/44028/1-25
    Arba per paiešką toj grupėj, yra kelios temos.

  6. hi, I've bought mine from Etsy and the lady shipped to France, so it should not be a problem. And they're really good and flexible!!
