Why can't I stop making these??? - NEW PICS!
aka - It's Bad When One Craft Enables Another.

I started beading before knitting seriously, and and now I've come full circle. What will I start making jewelry for next?? :thinking:

Below are just 3 out of many stitchmarker sets I've made (I've now lost count - not a good thing.) You can see a few more examples at my Flickr page:

*note to self: must ... stop ... making ... these - taking ... up ... knitting ... time*

I'm a beader too, and they're addicting, aren't they? :rofling: I have about 30 or 40 sets now and I only knit one or two projects at a time. :rollseyes: For me, it's the immediate gratification - I can whip up a set of stitch markers pretty quickly whereas a knitting project takes me forever. And now I can match my stitch markers to every color, style, and size of project.

It's a sickness really...

WOW

Those are awesome! You are truly tallented. If I tried I'd end up pinching my fingers or something. You ought to sell those! You could list them in the Buy/Swap/Sell section!

Those are beautiful!

(I've been wanting to try them, but I'm not sure where to get the half-toggles since I prefer that type.)

Y'all are all too sweet! Thanks for the props - sometimes you make something, and just don't have that objective eye ("really, is that good??" ). I didn't think about selling them, but you know what? It could help finance my yarn addiction .

Jan, et al - I'm not sure I want to enable somebody else, but they are super easy to make. I like the toggles best - non-snag (very picky 'bout that), I get a package of them and just use the ring part. No clue on what to do w/the bars - altho' I think I saw someone suggest using them for row markers (hunh?). I've gotten the toggle packages f/AC Moore, Michael's, and Walmart. AC Moore has silver- and gold-plated ones. Online you can find a slew of vendors. And looking around, there's literally at least 10 different ways to make the part that goes on the needles.

Wow! Glad to see I'm not the only addict here! I couldn't help but laugh when I read that you match your stitchmarkers to your project, but then I went :thinking: hmmm .... Lordee , "my name is Jude, and I'm an addict" ....

Hey, if you want to sell them, you could get a ton of customers in the 'Buy/Sell/Swap' Forum. I would buy them.
