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.

Can You Spot It?


While out walking the dogs we saw this. 



It's the Royal Automobile Club rescue helicopter. I wonder what they were trying to spot? I hope they found it.

    1. Yes, I meant the helicopter but it was also a question to the people in the helicopter. I hope they spotted whatever they were looking for.

    1. That's got to be a blow to the community. I hope there is no urgent need for them.

  7. If you didn't hear any news or gossip about an accident, then perhaps it was just a training exercise? I love how you can take a photo and turn it into a mystery!

    1. That's what I was thinking too, or maybe they were checking on environmental things, this shot was taken at a local wetland area and it probably needs to be assessed for fire breaks and such.
