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.

  6. I have so many problems with inches because the inch scale does not go down to such detail! But 64th of an inch!!!

    1. I don't mind working in inches for sewing but it's taken some practice. You won't be finding me working in 64ths anytime soon - that's what metric is for!

  9. I was struggling to remember why I knew about sixty-fourths Stella (not as a measure though) so I Googled (as you do) and it's also in music. Prompted a memory of playing the clarinet at school!

    Great different macro shots. How are you getting on with your computer and RAW?
