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.

    1. I didn't even think about the sky - that's what it usually looks like here. Blue, with a bit more blue, broken up with some blue.

    1. In my apple tree. They come and steal all the apples every year. People keep asking why we don't net the tree to keep them from being stolen. I think having the Twenty-eights visit is reason enough.

    1. I've tried for 3 weeks to get a decent shot of him to link up - I wanted one of him with an apple in his mouth. Maybe next time.

  7. Does he have 28 rings on his neck? Is he the 28th parrot photo??
    Then, I read your answer to Pixiedust, and figured maybe 28 is their name. Ain't I smart??!! ;)
