Oh my goodness, I absolutely love them!!! I have to admit though, my second thought upon seeing them (after, Oh my goodness, I absolutely love them!!!) was Oh, I'm not creative. I could never do anything like that. But if I'm not creative, then how am I doing all this knitting?
I think I may just be inspired to branch out in the crafting world!!!!! Great job, dear What an inspiration!

Oh my goodness, those are just lovely

I've thought about making some stitch markers and have actually gone to the craft store and looked at the supplies - but I am just lost, can't figure out the "how to" or what supplies/tools I need

This may just be the inspiration I need to seriously give it a go!

Wow, those are simply gorgeous! You did such a great job. I would think about selling them on Etsy if I were you. You could have a really good business going with those. They are so pretty. Nicer than many I have seen lately!

For larger rings, try using bracelet toggle clasps. The larger ones have a good sized hole which is great for larger needles!

I KNOW someone on this forum uses them as well. Maybe she'll see this and post her pictures again.

Awesome markers!

Oh, forgot to ask: What is the largest size bead that you like to use for your markers? Check your PMs and you'll know why.........................

Hi SusanMarie

I've just had a look at your stitch markers on e-bay and I think it's a great idea to be able to remove markers, from the knitted fabric or the needle, as you work.

Most people who make stitch markers sell them in sets of four and that's nowhere near enough (if you cannot remove them) - even for a child's cardigan.

All the Best
