|Special tools came in handy!|
The SnapSetter is a must-have for putting in metal snaps. I've used the snap/grommet-setting pliers before and it's impossible to apply even pressure over the entire snap and too easy to smoosh the snap out of shape. The SnapSetter assures the snap is set perfectly - the first time! I use a rubber mallet instead of a hammer so I won't break the tool. The lime green snaps were also from Snapsource (maker of the SnapSetter) and such a perfect match for the sweater, almost like they were custom made. I bought them so long ago they no longer carry them in size 24 in this color. Now I wish I'd brought my stash of snaps (next trip!).
Finally, this sweater I started in 2008 is DONE!
