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.

Party Tip!

Last week we asked if you make picture collages for your blog and if so which programme do you use. 

Well we won't keep you waiting, here are the top responses:

  • Picmonkey was hands down the most popular programme for making collages. 
  • Sarah likes to use Picmonkey and Canva.
  • Stella prefers Picasa offline/local.
  • Two Plus Cute shared The 8 best free online photo collage makers if you're interested in looking further afield.
