stitch markers

Filed under: knitting, projects — Jana @ 12:14 pm

I am about to start my next and most challenging project so far ( knitting a sweater), but before I did that I wanted to make it a little more special and treat myself with some fancy stitch markers. So I made these…Picture 263
And I demonstrated what they do (for all of you non-knitters) here on my orange boucle blanket…only because it’s the only project I have on the needles right now…I don’t know if this project will ever get off the needles (it’s not my favorite).

Picture 259

These just make it easier to count your stitches. I got the idea to make these simple stitch markers from wormspit.com When I was reading the tutorial about them I was very surprised to find out the person who came up with these is a dude… a dude who knits.

I think that is pretty rare.

  2. I need some of those. I just started a knitting project yesterday, a baby blanket. I swear it took me forever to start because I had to keep counting the stitch, it was such a pain. I bet those come in very handy.

  4. A dude on the starting line for the Boise State Football team knits. He attributes his patience as a running back to knitting. I’ve seen some of his beanies…he’s good.

  5. Those stitch markers are so cute. I think they’d be cute hanging off of alot of things…I love the copper and beads.
