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.

10 Reference Books I WISH Were In My Library

Which one do you want for Christmas?

I love love LOVE reconstructions of extant garments. 



I have the first three Patterns of Fashion, it kills me not having the fourth!



Seventeenth-Century Women's Dress Patterns: Book 1 & 2




I could go on and on and on about this scroll design that was ever so popular in the 17thC. 

Another day I will. 



All about early lace, I want this book sooo bad.

 (And some more bobbins and gold thread to go with it)

 How do I NOT have Norah in in my library already?






Costumes don't look right without the correct undergarments.



And of course some of the fabulous museum books. 




Any and all of these would be a great addition to my current library.

Okay, yes that's 13 books. I didn't think you were counting.
