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.

A Pinning Celebration


I want say a huge thank you to Sarah for stepping up and getting the party organised while I was too busy creating tissue snow

Happy Pinning!


Bridge Pins

Bridge pins are used on some musical instruments to locate the string precisely in the horizontal plane, and in the case of harpsichords to affect the sustain of the strings. They are usually made of steel in modern pianos, of brass in harpsichords, and bone or synthetics on acoustic guitars. Electric guitars do not usually have bridge pins as, in guitars, they are used to transfer the sound from the strings into the hollow body of the instrument as well as holding the strings in place.

In pianos the pins are set precisely in line with the edges of the notches of the bridge. The precise and firm setting of the pins is a critical element of the piano's quality. Loose or inaccurate pinning commonly produces false beats and tonal irregularities.

In harpsichords there tends to be a significant distance instead. This enables control of sustain and tone in harpsichord design.

  1. Thanks for the Pin Party, Ladies! Too early in the morning and I'm not paying attention to my linking up! You can delete my duplicate error on one and the link and caption on the other- I don't know what happened.
