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.

Carved

As there was so much interest in the carvings from My Sunday Shot 14 I decided to share some of the details of the carvings with you.

  2. Wood carvings are interesting. I dabbled a little in this in high school art class. Nothing this elaborate, but it was fun to do. In fact, I still have the piece I crafted. I shall have to pull it out sometime and photograph. Congrats on being this week's featured photographer! Have a fototastic week! ;) ~ Curious as a Cathy

  10. Me encantaría saber tallar, lo veo tan complicado... además en la madera cobra una especial belleza. La madera ya es bonita de por sí, pues vestidas con este arte más.
    No dejes de hacerlo, está muy bien.
