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. Awww. This photo made me remember and miss all our dogs in the Philippines. We have 6 when I left and now there are only 3 sadly. One of the reason why I want to go home. I miss them dearly and I am thinking if they still remember me after not seeing me for 5 years.

    1. Six dogs must be a bit of handful. I'm sorry you never got to say goodbye. I am sure they will remember you. Dogs have great memories.

    1. He does, and he puts on his best sad face anytime he thinks it will get him more food, which it does, quite regularly.

    1. He likes to come up and bop your elbow with his head to see if you'll share whatever you've got. He got his share - just not how he wanted it!
      Sorry for the late reply - I'm going back to see what comments I've missed.
