I needed a clasp for a vest I knitted. Unfortunately I had placed the buttonholes where the pattern told me to… It looked very strange that way when worn. So I needed to button the vest where there is no buttonhole. The dear Schnugis helped me solve this problem: what I needed was a clasp or a pin of some kind. That reminded me of the fibulas in the “Bead on wire” book by Sharilyn Miller which I had never tried out, thinking I would not have a use for them. Now I had.
So this is my first fibula, but probably not the last –> different cardigans and shawl call for different colors of fibulas and it is a nice way to use small single glass beads.
