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.

Walk With Pawpose

Have you ever heard of Million Paws Walk?

Million Paws Walk is held every year to raise funds for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals more commonly referred to as the RSPCA.

The Million Paws Walk has been a huge success in Western Australia (WA) for the last two decades, but this year is special, because 2016 is WA's 20th Anniversary of Million Paws Walk.  The goal is to make this extra special Million Paws Walk the biggest and best ever.

If you've ever considered taking part in the Million Paws Walk 2016 is the year to do it!

Millions Paws Walk is an Australia Wide fund-raiser event, I used to think that there was only one walk location per state but they are held all over and there's sure to be a walk near you.

You can register early or just rock up on the day.

Pawsome Activities

It's the pawfect day out for the fur kids, there's the Canine Adventure Course, VIPooch area, great food at the doggy Diner, or even get a check-up from some brilliant Vet students just to mention a few of the attractions at the main event.

Over 90% of RSPCA funds are from community donations. Fund raising events such as Million Paws Walk are vital to reaching funding targets.

Funds are used to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome hundreds of WA animals each year, made possible because of the generosity of our animal loving community.

  4. "Oh don't mine me. I'm just here to pet all the dogs."
Did I mention there's show bags? And they're free!


  1. I am not a walker but this is an excellent reason to do it. :)

    1. It's worth going just to meet all the doggies IMHO. =)
