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.

  4. Wouldn't you love to know what is on his (her) mind? The look is intense ... like a ponce might be in the offing. Great shot and editing ...

    1. She was giving me the 'no more photos' stare :o) I was too lazy to edit this photo, I added the logo and shrunk it down. Usually I have to crop or add a bit of brightness. lens 50mm, f/1.8, 1/30, ISO 6400

    1. I'm not sure I should tell her you said that, she already thinks very highly of herself.
