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.

Scratchy

...because a flower is prettier to look at then a tissue box

I'm sick - which explains my lack of motivation late last week - the scratchy throat, stuffy head, running a temperature kind of sick.

When I'm sick I like to bundle myself up on the couch, watch some costumey shows and do a spot of crochet. But I can't crochet because of my stupid shoulder and I can't watch shows because hubby is working from home.

My head is full of fuzzy and I can't think clearly enough to write coherently structured, amazingly awesome posts, or even just plain sensical posts. (Surley sensical is a word right? Nonsensical is a word so sensical must be, however spell check disagrees. Pfffft to spell check!)

Anyway, that's if for me for today. I'm going to go and snuggle up on the couch with the dogs and do as little as possible.
