FO: Stitch Markers!
I these. I spent 2.5 hours at the store today trying to decide how to make the darned things, and finally.. an idea struck me! I was holding it in my hand the entire time, but I never thought of it.

These were soooo much fun to see getting put together. No stitch marker looks alike and they are soooo colorful. I love them.

I am definately willing to make more if anyone is interested. Very easy to change the size of them as well, though as viewed they're on a size 11 US needle. I don't like to make normal things. They always need to have a little *SHABAM* here or there, or something that makes you go, "Whaaa???"

So yeah. What do ya think??? This is giving me soooo many more ideas now. I need to buy smaller plyers too so I can fix the ends so they won't stick to anything, but that's easy. Ideas, Ideas, IDEAS! Vlahahahahaha....

They'll be fine. I can easily fix the ends for these, and the next ones I make will be made differently so that won't be a problem at all.

And thanks! I love them!!! Hehehehe.

They just go from needle to needle. That's how I was told stitch markers work. I can always fix them if I need to I guess. Even the ones you buy at the store are closed like this, and they're plastic and fuuuuugly. Hehe.

Your stitch markers are very cute. I agree with you about the ones at the store. When I bought my knitting kit I didn't know what they were. They looked like something that is leftover from DIY furniture! I have never used stitch markers before but whenever I get around to it, I want mine to be cute as well.
