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.

Two Uses Tuesday Linky Party
Two Uses Tuesday is LIVE until Thursday at 10pm EST (2am  Friday UTC).

I want to thank everyone who shared and helped to get the word out there about the WWII ship HDML 1321. The port has agreed to lift her from the water and dock her until funds can be raised.


Small tip for you this week, well, more of a suggestion
by Sarah


Enjoy life, yours and the ones you care about. Love, grieve, observe & remember. Experience every bit of it. Write it down. Go back and remember how you felt. Life is short and we should savor each moment.
