Knitting Clamps

YarnGuy's picture

Not too long ago, I saw an ad for knitting clamps in a magazine. I'm just finishing a sweater, and I hate using pins to keep pieces together while sewing. The advert showed these clamps were designed for holding knitted pieces together while assembling. After seeing the ad, I even visited the website, but didn't buy and forgot to bookmark, and I can't remember the name of the company. Google has been no help. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I'd appreciate any tips.

I use little spring clamps they use to hold orchid stems to support poles (to keep them from breaking under the weight of the blossoms...) but hey, I'm in horticulture and they are available wholesale to me They work great, too.

My 2cents, and I'm paying....

Hey...another YarnGuy! I picked that name because I was able to get it as an e-mail address from my broadband company. I figured I'd use it as contact for the men's knitting group I'm trying to start in San Diego. Actually, I crochet, too, and want to open the group to both. Cheers.....G.
