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.

What of the future?

Last week I also finished an interesting read,

A hundred years hence : the expectations of an optimist

by Russell, T. Baron

Published 1905

The author imagined many things that have indeed become reality. One of the things he imagined was world peace. Perhaps in another 100 years?
“I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right.” ― Albert Einstein

  1. I hope we'll have peace in 100 years. And we will once Christ comes back and establishes His kingdom on earth.

  3. I agree completely with Albert Einstein, I don't want to give up the hope of peace. A thoughtful post in the face of a horrid week xx

    1. History has us hoping for peace again and again, I hope it comes true this time.
