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.

Possibilities


I love that heady feeling of new yarn. So many things that it could become!
When I fist purchased this yarn in August 2015 I had plans of making a throw and that was all. 


It has since provided me with yarn for some Easter egg motifs and golden table runner.  There is still some yarn left, and the possibilities are endless!

    1. I wish I felt that excited by food. I want to come to your place with some fancy Swan Valley produce and you can cook it up while I crochet you a new pot holder or two =D

    1. I love the shine and my new project is coming along quite well. It's a big one though so it might be a little while before I get it finished but I'm going as fast as I can!
