Pattern Weights

Hello everyone. I'm sorry about the holiday hiatus. I don't know about the rest of you but I was holed up working on people's christmas presents until the ninth hour. This was exacerbated by the un-precedented (at least in my life time) snow that we got here in Portland. Christmas shopping was hard without snow plows. Anyways I would like to do a post about pattern weights. People seem to have very strong feelings about where and how they use their weights. I have also never been able to buy pattern weights I liked and have therefore made my own. I imagine that its the same for many of you. So, I would like people to send me pictures of your weights and comments about how you use them. Please send them to carlymick@gmail.com.
Cheers and a happy new year!

Carly, once you've gotten a few you have to post the photos...
I just got a few real industry standard weights -- they're lovely, and unlike the basket of change I was using before, there's no risk of pennies all over my floor.

Looking forward to seeing and reading the result as I don't have any weights I'm satisfied with.

Have a happy new year!

Please post the photos! I would to see what others are using. At my day job we have industrial nice ones, but they are $$$. At my studio I have been using anything heavy enough. Pencil sharpener, water bottles, books. I need to find something that works well, and isn't too costly.

I will post the photos but I need people to send them in. I would love to know what "industrial nice ones" are and how much they cost. I also want pictures of your pencil sharpener and change jar. A free tutorial on plackets goes to the person with the best collection.

My day job is in a factory. So I will look into how much they cost, and where they come from. I'll also snap some photos and send them when I am work tomorrow.
