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.

Life Doesn't Always Go To Plan

My entire schedule for this week was thrown out the window when I decided I should fix the loose tile on the bathroom floor.

What I found was not what I expected. The result was that I ripped all of the tiles up and started scraping.

The shower came out, which is when I realised the floor was pretty much beyond saving.

Hubby is under the weather so it's up to me to get it sorted. I've never done anything like this before and I pretty much have a zero budget. Wish me luck!
