Knitty Gritty is currently on, and Annie Modesitt is the guest. I have seen this combo corset t episode like 5 times now, and every time I wonder, where did she get those stitch markers. One is a donut, one is a fortune cookie and one is a cupcake. There are more, but those are the only ones I can make out. Does anyone know where I can get the same markers? They are so cute, I would absolutely love to have a set for my knitting.

Those are adorable. It looks like they also have breakfast food and cake slices. LOL

Jan, the price shown is in Australian Dollars, but you can change the currency at the bottom of the page. The set of four is about $36 USD.

Thirty six dollars for 4 stitch markers???? :noway:

They are adorable but still -- I could probably get 3 skeins of MMMMMMMalabrigo for that amount of $$$$$

Now that I could do.

:happydance:

Best,

You can usually find them on Ebay too :) Scary Merry is the seller and she does fabulous work! Much cheaper than the other site

Heh, I just watched that episode the other night. On tape though as we don't get DIY in this area. I'm making the corset-t for my daughter. I always think about how cute those stitch markers are too. :)

Where are all the manly stitch markers????? You know, beer bottles, bikini clad babes, power tools...

There were breakfast ones on the site (one was bacon). Perhaps artery clogging meat is more manly?

Hmmm, throw in some pizza and that might work.

She was waiting for the rings to arrive so she could make stitch markers out of them.

How about rocks? Or beer caps?

Knitting_Guy

Hey Sabrina hit on it!

Beer caps eh? If I could smooth the edges with a roto tool, punch them, and thread a wire to a ring, that would actually work.

Those pizza ones are cute! Beer cap ones would be pretty cool especially for a guy!

Now if I could just figure out where to get beer caps.


Oh yeah, the kitchen!


Now I have a good excuse for drinking beer. Hey, it's for a crafts project!

I've always believed that humor is the true spice of life.

If God hadn't wanted us to laugh he wouldn't have made other people so funny looking.

You just gave me a great idea! I'll make some markers with beer bottle caps! My friend who taught me how to bead also does stuff with bottle caps :eyebrow: I may attempt this today if I see her. If they turn out ok, I'll send you some Heineken markers, straight from Holland :rofl:

Where are all the manly stitch markers????? You know, beer bottles, bikini clad babes, power tools...If you can find the charms, they can be made in about 85 seconds. :teehee: Seriously. It takes no time at all to make these things if you have the materials. So if you can find the charms, I'll have them made for you! Deal? :happydance:

Sounds like a plan. But if I find some that I like I'll probably just have to learn how to make them. :teehee:

The problem for me with all these stitch markers is that they don't open up. I like mine to open up, you know with the lock thingy. Sometimes I need to take them off and put them somewhere else, and what's worse, without the opening lock, they're useless when I crochet. I use stitch markers all the time for crocheting in the round.

I just ordered a bunch of cute stitch markers real cheap from China. They sent me an email saying it was mailed on the 12th, so we'll see how they look and whether I can recommend them to you guys. these are the split ring type so you can open up the ring and lock it again.

Nikki; I agree with you, I think that I would prefer ones that have some sort of clip that can be opened.

I have to admit, those cupcake and doughnut stitch markers are bomb diggity, but I can't justify spending $9/marker plus international shipping from Australia. I make my own stitch markers out of split rings, headpins and beads. I have some beautiful glass leaves in assorted colors I'm using to make some right now, as a matter of fact.

Now, the Hello Kitty stitch markers are another story. Those would be well worth the money, considering my really silly addiction to all things HK at my age. Like the childhood fetish I never grew out of LOL I have a Hello Kitty tattooed on each upper arm. Every time my sister sees them she asks, "sick of 'em yet?" and I just smile and say, "never!" :teehee:

The problem for me with all these stitch markers is that they don't open up. I like mine to open up, They can be made on lobster claws rather than rings and open very nicely. Check the findings area of your local bead store or craft store.

They can be made on memory wire if you want them to open up. Just as easy! Actually, easier because you can glue the ball ends instead of making a loop with the pliers!

02-18-2007, 08:25 PM
Webigail, those are very nice. I like them.

02-18-2007, 08:40 PM
those are so nice... i should buy some stitch markers but nothing beats a free peice of yarn...in contrasting color of course :teehee:
Anyway like jmp3775 was saying you can totally make your own "open" markers using the memory wire. I saw this picture online they're wine rings made with memory wire...you put them on your wine glasses ...But i don't see why they couldn't be or become stitchmarkers as well. And if you want them to close for the time being you can link the end loops together.
