If you buy the jump rings to use as stitch markers, why not spring an extra few bucks on beads and headpins to make your own "pretty" ones. Once you've gone and checked out Art Lady's tutorial, you'll see how easy they are to make (and addicting!).

The addicting part is why I was avoiding making my own!!! I'm already addicted to the knitting...

ecb: Whenever you get some time, I'd love to see what you have!

Hi Ronda! The photo tutorial (step by step creation of a stitch marker) is located on HERE ON page 4 of Custom Stitch Markers. I don't know if you ever plowed through far enough to find the tutorial. I didn't start the thread with the intentions of posting photos, or I would have put them on the Original Post. But, several knitters asked for some additional help on how to make them...so I made a stitch marker specially for this thread (and took step by step photos)

As things progressed on the thread, Larudden (Leslie) volunteered a lot of additonal ideas for making stitch markers that don't need a separate jumpring, and are ultimately less costly.
Good luck, and don't hesitate to ask for additonal help!
