Thanks for all the great pattern recs, Tien! I have made Hermione’s Everyday Socks - those were my first pair using magic loop. That’s a great pattern. I will check the rest out and the yarns! Of course, I’ll look at those, too! Erin

I mostly used small brads and picture hangers. Some required a screw and anchor. It just depends on the actual letter and how much it weighs.
