Nice tip! Thanks!

I made some yarn stitch markers several years ago. The yarn I was using was getting snagged by the regular stitch makers. Nothing in my stitch marker arsenal was right for the job. It was a lace project, BTW.

So I used some waste yarn, and tied yarn around a larger metal needle, securing the tight knots with a drop of fabric glue.

Voila! Some yarn markers! They slipped from one needle to the other easily, silently, and without causing havoc with my project yarn!

I love to read about stitch marker alternatives! Thanks for your contribution! (and yes, I have some lonely earrings without a mate, too!)
