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.


I'm sure I was going to write about something incredibly interesting to share with you today.

Instead I got lost in the sewing room creating for the HSM March stash busting challenge.

Here's a sneak peak.

 The image above is the fashion fabric. The one below is the lining fabric.

It feels good to be sewing. What do you do like to get lost doing?


  1. Oooh, it can be sewing or even writing. Sometimes, even just thinking about what to create next!

    1. I can totally get lost in planning! I have to be careful of that, it doesn't get anything made ;)

  2. Interesting!! I have to get back to sewing when i go part time in the Fall....
    Thanks for stopping by!! I think you will enjoy Mr. Selfridge!!


    1. It's probably too working class for Mr Selfridge to put on display, but perhaps the gown to go with it will be more Selfridge worthy - I guess I'll have to watch to really now :o) I hope you get some great sewing projects done when you have the chance :o)

  3. I get lost all the time!! lol!! Thanks for sharing on My 2 Favorite Things on Thursday - Link Party!! Hope you come back tomorrow and share some more...I love having you!! Pinned!!
