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.

Make-up Clutter

Before the re-decluttering begins

Today I pulled out all of my makeup to re-declutter it all. I've gone through it a few times but this time I did much better, mostly because I was prepared to swatch everything.

I have a dream of having only one of each item and loving all of it. The first step is to get rid of all the stuff I don't use.

I'm loathe to promise another post as there are several I've promised you and not delivered on (yet) but I'm still recovering from this dreaded lurgy so I'm too tired to edit images and write about today's big makeup purging session.

I shall bring you more tomorrow!
