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.

Rocky Water


I'm always fascinated by running water, mosses and rocks and when all three come together it's extra special.

  1. Been visiting the outback I take it? I'm also fascinated by moving water and rocks. It just teels the story of the land, doesn't it? #MySUndayPhoto

    1. Oh gosh, I guess you could call it that, we call this a 'tourist trap', ahem, 'tourist attraction'. There's a big river rafting event held here each year when the water is much higher.

    1. I've lived by the sea and it is a completely different sound to a stream, right now I have to travel to hear either.
