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.

The Works

The Old Workshops


Heritage 'Interpretation' Works?

If this building were built today it would be a concrete pull-up

    1. This is the old rail-way workshops and there is a row of massive building after massive building that have been sitting there for ever doing nothing. Now they are being restored for all sorts of uses.

  2. Certainly looks like a building worth preserving. Will you be taking hots throughout the restoration? #MySundayPhoto

    1. A lot of restoration has been undertaken already to some of the buildings, and you can barely tell, others have a brand new and very modern facade so you can't even tell that it was once a historical building. I will go down and get more shots though.
