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.

Two Uses Tuesday 58

Two Uses Tuesday Linky Party
Two Uses Tuesday is LIVE until Friday at 11pm EST (3am  Saturday UTC).

Tip of the week

Great lighting is so important to take that image from so-so to WoW!. Natural light is the easiest cheapest way to achieve that but sometimes you might have to wait to capture those golden hour moments.

If you need to fake it a few light bulbs and a white poster board (to bounce light off) will give you the next best thing!
