I’m a bit over halfway with my Dockside cardigan sleeves, and going out of my mind with boredom at the miles and miles of stockinette. So I decided to give myself little breaks over the course of the day, and get my stitch markers organized. I put them in a bead/findings box that was originally from Michael’s:
There’s a lot of spare space, but I know there are still markers hiding out amongst the project bags. And I suspect there will be more stitch markers in the future.
Some of my favorites were gifts from two blog friends – Sarah and Liz 🙂
Sarah of mildlygranola sent me this beautiful hand beaded snowflake, and also this cool tea and treats stitch marker set!
And Liz at HighlandHeffalump sent me these lovely sea glass and seashell progress keepers:
Many of the others I made myself during my jewelry-making phase, some came with yarn clubs, or I just got them because they looked cool. Now that most of my markers are assembled, I notice there is a disproportionate number of skulls in there…
Oh well, at least now they are organized!
If you are a knitter or crocheter, do you use stitch markers? If you do, do you like to collect and use different ones, or just have utilitarian ones?
