Which Stitch Markers Are Best

When I first took up crochet I didn't have any stitch markers, I didn't even know stitch markers existed. It wasn't long before I knew about them and I learnt the value of using stitch markers, aka stitch savers. That first frustrating experience of when a project accidentally unravels because there's nothing holding onto the stitch to stop it coming undone or your crochet circle grows in ways it isn't supposed to and the worth of this tiny tool became obvious very quickly. But there are so many styles of stitch marker to choose from, locking, circle, coil-less, plastic, safety pins, thread, 3D printed... does it really make a difference which one you use? Is it just how pretty they are? I walk you through a dozen different stitch markers from items you have lying around your home to the fancy artisan styles. I share with you what features to look for and those that don't really hold up to the task.

Welcome to my blog

I guess this is the part where I welcome you to my blog and tell you how exciting and awesome I hope it will be or something like that. And really, you ARE very welcome here!



However I'm not going to make any promises as to awesomeness or excitement, nor will I promise regular posts, good photo's, helpful tutorials & tips or even that my ramblings will make sense. I'm going to give it a go of course (or you wouldn't be reading this). I'm really new to this whole blogging thing and have a lot to learn so I'll hope you'll forgive any bad lay out, blogging faux pars, put-you-to-sleep ramblings and anything else I'm likely to stuff up along the way. Feel free to let me know if you think I could improve something.

By the way, I know I will provide a confusing mix of imperial and metric measurements, I use both and often I'll use them in the same project - sorry about that.

Oh, I nearly forgot, it's all about costuming, mostly historical stuff...enjoy!

  1. I just love your photo of the Duchesse Consort of Florence but am eternally pleased I don't have to wear clothes like her! Fine for an hour or so maybe though! Thank you so much for joining in with #MyFirstBlogPost :)

  2. I don't know, I think she was one of the luckier ones in history, where clothing was padded and corsets and crinolines were rare. Generally quite comfortable, I would love to have her wardrobe.
