Does anyone know of a good tool for inserting a drawstring through a slot (as in the cord at the waistband of sweat pants) ? I remember my mother using something called a "bodkin" which looked like a very long safety pin. One thing I've tried is drilling a very small hole in the fat end of a chopstick, threading it with a sturdy yarn and tying that to whatever I want to weave through. I'm sure there must be a better way. Thanks for any suggestions.
Thanks! Even a very large safety pin would require that I slowly inch my way through the tunnel. What I'm considering if a very long, very skinny stitch holder, if I can find such a thing. I can't believe no one makes bodkins any more. They're very useful.

Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.
