Substitute for Texsolv Pegs
What a drag when you're in the middle of a tie-up or other loom configuration and you run out of those little Texsolv pegs. Here's something you can use in a pinch and something most people have ready access to: pushpins. Simply snip the pin off with a wire cutter and you have a handy Texsolv peg. Poke the small end of the pushpin through the loop in the cord and voila. You can, then, carry on.
