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.

ahhh Tissue!

I've been boogieing with the tissue box this week, (childish pun intended). 

We shall return to our regular programme as soon as possible. 

What's your top tips for surviving the dreaded lurgi? 


  1. Oh no, Stella! Poor thing, you have really been going thru the mill lately!
    More prayers for recovery!
    Love, Melinda

    1. Oh it's been loads of fun and games here. Thank you lovely.

  2. Honey, lemon, and ginger... Any or all, if you have them! And sleep always helps, if you can get it.

    Hope you feel better!

    1. Thank you lovely, I'm still trying to catch up on comments and other stuff I got behind on.
