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. It's always great to explore! Your dog is having a great time in these photos. My dog would have been straight in that water, then out shaking all the water all over us.

    1. The water was a bit murky that day and she likes to see the bottom otherwise she would have jumped straight in!

  2. Looks like plenty of sniffing and poking around going on there.

    1. She's brave enough to go out and have a good investigate but our other dog isn't.

  3. That is pretty cool. You do assume Geri is going to end up in the water. #MySundayPhoto

    1. We watched wondering, it was 50/50 but she decided that spot wasn't where she wanted to go swimming that day.

  4. Aw, she didn't jump in - Saari probably would have done!

    1. She pondered it, nearly did - decided it was too far down and she wasn't sure how deep the water is, Geri doesn't like it if she can't see the bottom.

    1. The water is further down then it seems in the shot, she decided to find somewhere shallower to go for her swim.

    1. Oh she jumped right in! Just not off the log, which was a bit too far away from the water for her.
