Blocking without pins?

I’m finishing up my fist sweater and I would like to block it, because I have heard nothing but good things about blocking here. All of the blocking methods require T-pins, but I don’t have any! Can I use something instead of t-pins? TIA!

I’m pretty sure you can use regular ol’ straight pins instead, as long as they’re rust proof. (I just bought a case of 250 today for my first blocking adventure, so I hope I’m right! :lol:)
