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.

Welcome to Pinbellish!

A Pinning Celebration

Shortly after Pinbellish launched, our original 3 grew to 5 hosts. We couldn't have been happier to be joined by Allie and Gina smile emoticon Unfortunately, Allie is unable to continue her co-hosting duties at our little pinning party due to changes with her work commitments. Her craftiness will continue to inspire us over at Crafty Allie.

On other things, it's taking me a little longer to get around to pinning all the pins while my back giving me trouble, but I promise they all get pinned to my boards!

These acrylic rolling pins are a popular choice for confectioners. The relief design gives pastry and fondant an embossed effect
