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. We get that lovely sky for most of the year. It's one of the best things about living in WA.

    1. I've tried for a few planes and with the black and white on this one providing so much contrast it made it easier to get a reasonable shot.

  5. Great photo. Rather than trying to get an expensive lens, i am going to try and get a 1.7 AF-S Teleconverter. This will help make my 300mm lens in to 510mm lens. Anyways. thanks for sharing.

    1. I'd be happy with just a 300mm but I'll have to make do with my zoom for now.
