You can find these lovely copper stitch holders in the SpindleCatStudio shop along with the finest no-snag stitch markers.
On photo of markers: Plastic one is for that loop closest to the bottom as it gets buried when working with such fine lace-weight. Copper one keeps top loops separate from the cnupp for ease of working through it.
See Aoibhie’s YouTube video showing the techniques in this pattern
The two photos with the shawl on the chair really show that a good blocking will open up the pattern beautifully.

Wow and I’m blushing
