what can i use as a stitch marker?
i'm kinda new to the whole "stitch marker" concept. i've seen them come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and textures. some ppl even just use a piece of yarn! so, the question is what can and can't i use as a stitch marker?
can i use a key-ring? a rubberband (u know, those really small one's ppl put in their hair)? how about a really cheap toy ring?

You can use anything that slips easily from one needle to the other. I happen to have some fancy ones and I like them because they don't go flying off and get lost the way the plastic rings can. Yarn is good, too.
I don't recommend the little rubberbands. I tried them once and they do get caught up and twisted rather than slide easily on the needles.
