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.

  3. Beautiful-I especially like the first one. Although it feels slightly autumnal and I'm not quite ready for that just yet!

    1. Yes, the row of trees is my favourite too. I felt compelled to show the details of why they are so red. I didn't have my camera on me and was using the little pentax which I'm still figuring out so this was the best I could manage. Thankfully we are coming into spring but the trees get so confused here - as you can see.

    1. I love the colour too, I'm not sure I would call it coral though, but maybe if I had some red coral to compare it too I would.

    1. The camera does all the work. You could totally take pics like this. What's your blog URL? I couldn't find it on your G+ profile?
